Opening date set for new pub at Crown Hotel Boston Spa with open kitchen and conservatory
An opening date has been set for a new pub set to transform a vacant hotel in Boston Spa.
The Crown Hotel, located in the village near Wetherby will reopen to the public on Wednesday May 26.
The Grade-II listed building has been vacant for more than nine years and has undergone a £1.2million renovation over the last 12 months.
It's under the new ownership of Further Afield Pubs, the independent Leeds-based company behind the overhaul of the Beck and Call in Meanwood.
The Crown Hotel will feature an open kitchen, private dining space and a newly constructed conservatory - The Stables - which will sit in the newly landscaped garden.
Its return will also create at least 25 new jobs for locals.
General manager Chris Impett said: “We’re really excited to get the place open and welcome the community back to their local after so many years of it being stood empty.
"It will be a pub for that quick pint after a long day’s graft, as well as somewhere to meet friends and family for a meal in our new contemporary dining area.
“You can expect the likes of beer battered haddock and chips, steak and treacle ale pie, and a traditional roast served with all the trimmings every Sunday.
"We’ll also have imaginative vegetarian and vegan dishes.”
The Crown Hotel has announced on its Instagram account that it will be a dog-friendly pub, with plenty of tables available outside or in the bar area for pooches.
It will serve a seasonal menu incorporating produce from local and regional Yorkshire suppliers, including meat cuts and fresh fish caught by line on the East Coast and landed exclusively by day boat.
