Crown Shrewsbury

Extensive refurbishment planned that will transform the Crown into an amazing venue.

The Crown sits in a prime location in the beautiful town of Shrewsbury opposite the popular tourist attraction the Abby of Abbey Foregate. This amazing refurbishment will breathe new life into this traditional Grade II listed building, creating a characterful pub and setting it apart from the competition. It will not only attract visitors to the area it will become the go-to destination for locals. Friends and family can enjoy great food, the perfect pint, or even a coffee while relaxing in the new warm and welcoming surroundings.

In addition to this, we will transform the 'Secret Garden' to the rear of the pub. By adding a covered area and festooned lighting, this will allow the Crown to trade outside all year round, increasing covers by 47.
We are looking for a partner to join Star on this journey and see the difference the refurbished Crown will make to the area? Are you that person? Do you promote your business and drive it forward? Are you Passionate and customer-driven? If so, we would love to hear from you.

The refurbishment will involve a complete upgrade of the current space both inside and out. Redecoration of the existing bar area, as well as adding a wider range of seating options and a lush secret garden. There will also be seating at the front of the venue. The changes will truly transform the venue to appeal to a new, wider demographic who are looking for a quintessential pub experience.

A new catering kitchen will be installed which will accommodate a total of 149 covers - 102 Internal and 47 external.

Full details and layout of this amazing transformation are available in the 'Refurbishment Details' download attached to this web page.

Applicants should be aware that all refurbishments are subject to final board approval which will be determined as part of the leasing process. Where a significant investment is made in a pub by Star Pubs & Bars, an 'Investment Exemption' will be required. The exemption means that the option of a Market Rent Option lease will not be available at rent review for a period of up to seven years for this site, as per The Pub Code (2016)

The calculation of the Estimated Minimum Ingoing Costs assumes a minimum deposit of 1 month's rent or £3,000 (whichever is greater) and that fixtures and fittings (F&F) are rented. The subsequent deposit build up and F&F rental costs are not included in the rent model or ongoing costs below.
