THIS NOVEMBER, THE COMMUNITY OF MINCHINHAMPTON WILL BE THRILLED TO SEE THE RE-OPENING OF LOCAL STALWART, THE CROWN, WHICH CLOSED ITS DOORS OVER FIVE YEARS AGO. THE LUCKY ONION WILL WELCOME THE CROWN TO ITS FAMILY OF LUXURY AND DESIGN-LED PERIOD ESTABLISHMENTS, INCLUDING THE HOLLOW BOTTOM, NO.131 AND NO.38.
The 18th century building, which originally opened in 1715, has been cleverly renovated by Dowdeswell Estates in order to retain the pub’s distinctive features while also adding signature design flourishes to bring The Crown up to date. Living up to its name, The Crown is best known as HRH Princess Anne’s local and a stone’s throw from Gatcombe Park, so guests might find themselves rubbing shoulders with royalty around the wood-burning stove.
Welcoming guests just in time for Winter, The Crown will be the perfect place to enjoy the delicious dishes and locally sourced produce that you come to expect from The Lucky Onion’s Executive Chef, Ronnie Bonetti. The understated yet classic British menu at The Crown highlights the very best quality ingredients including a variety of cuts of beautiful and well-aged meat cooked up on the grill.
If you would just like to linger by the fireside with a drink, there’s plenty of real ale and outstanding wine, as well as live music from regular local artists. And when summer returns, guests can while away the hours in the secluded terrace garden.
This addition to The Lucky Onion’s portfolio further highlights Jade and Julian Dunkerton’s commitment to invest in Cheltenham and The Cotswolds, making this part of the country an even more desirable destination for both international and UK holiday-makers. The Crown joins The Hollow Bottom in Guiting Power in an exciting series of new developments by The Lucky Onion, which has plans to develop multiple historic buildings in the area.
