Peter’s occupational background for some 30 years has been running the family business specialising in building preservation.

The Rose & Crown has undergone a complete refurbishment bringing the building back to its significant status as a public house and restaurant within the village.


The interior of the Rose & Crown has also undergone a complete makeover, including an impressive new bar. At the heart of the design is a dual aspect log fire. The idea was to create a modern relaxed atmosphere whilst being sympathetic to traditional village pub feel.
