Pub set to re-open under new ownership following £1.2m revamp

The Crown Hotel, located in Boston Spa near Wetherby, will reopen to the public on Wednesday 26 May following a nine-year closure.

The Grade II listed building, on the corner of Church Street and High Street, has undergone an extensive renovation over the past 12 months costing in the region of £1.2m.

Under the new ownership of Further Afield Pubs – behind the successful overhaul of The Beck & Call in Meanwood – the venture aims to revive a village institution, reinstating it as a venue for the local community, while creating at least 25 local jobs.

It will feature an open kitchen, private dining space and a newly constructed conservatory, named The Stables, which will sit amongst a new landscaped garden.

General Manager, Chris Impett said: “We’re really excited to get the place open and welcome the community back to their local after so many years of it being stood empty.

“It will be a pub for that quick pint after a long day’s graft, as well as somewhere to meet friends and family for a meal in our new contemporary dining area.

“You can expect the likes of beer battered haddock and chips, steak and treacle ale pie, and a traditional roast served with all the trimmings every Sunday. We’ll also have imaginative vegetarian and vegan dishes.”
