Could you run this pub in Shrewsbury?
This Crown & Sceptre is a traditional wet led pub located at the heart of Minsterley in Shrewsbury. It is a classic village pub that has a cosy feel with exposed beams, open fireplaces and warm wooden furnishings. It’s well-loved by locals for its quality drinks, including cask marque accredited ales, and sports offer with all key sporting events shown on the big screen through Sky Sports. The Crown & Sceptre is also home to many local sports teams and houses its own darts and pool table.
The Crown & Sceptre has a spacious main bar area, a snug lounge that is perfect for a relaxed drinking experience and a games area. It also benefits from a catering kitchen which could be utilised to introduce a simple yet delicious food offer into the pub. Outside is a lovely enclosed beer garden with a patio that is the perfect place to enjoy a cold pint in the sunshine. As well as this the pub is next to a disused bowling green which acts as an extended beer garden.
We have exciting investment plans to make over the pub inside and out to enhance its traditional look and feel. The catering kitchen will be upgraded and the snug will be extended to create a dedicated dining area. As well as this the patio will be made over to allow guests to enjoy it year round.
