More about The Crown

The new Business Partners here will ideally have experience in the hospitality industry with a good knowledge of managing a busy town centre site. This is a great opportunity for an operator looking to move to the next level with a site that has huge potential. We are looking for a point of difference in the offering to what is currently available in the town.

The Crown sits in the heart of the vibrant market town of Devizes. It has benefitted from extensive investment over the years, creating a fabulous outside trade area, which includes a large courtyard and a fantastic barn conversion containing a bar, kitchen, and seating. This gives excellent potential to capitalise the business through al-fresco drinking and dining. The business split is generally 60% wet and 40% food, it’s good sized and the well-equipped kitchen facilitates a great food offer. The pub also benefits from a separate function room on the 1st floor, which can generate extra income from private events or large group bookings; the local skittle league also has made use of its skittle alley.

  • Deposit £8,000
  • Fixtures & Fittings TBC
  • Stock (estimated to be) £6,000

The Crown offers 5 separate trading areas: the main bar area (26), lounge (18), main dining room (42), conservatory (16) and the function room with skittle alley on the 1st floor (65). Fully equipped trade kitchen with separate wash up and a further prep area/ fridge, freezer room to the rear of the building along with a cleaning store. All toilets are accessed on the ground floor contained within the same area.

The Crown has benefitted from previous investment to the external courtyard, which offers a large patio with seating for 100, some of which is undercover. This can be serviced by an outside trade kitchen and bar, beautifully incorporated in the old barn.

The private accommodation is accessed within the pub and comprises of a lovely sized lounge, 3 double Bedrooms (1 with an en-suite), a shower room and kitchen.
