Rose & Crown Update:

We’re sure you’ve all the noticed the scaffolding, and we’re very pleased to be starting work on the renovation of the Rose & Crown.

Starting from the top, we are cleaning and repairing the roof with external decorating about to commence. Electrical checks and remedial work is going on inside as some of you have noticed.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the scaffolding or the noise while we work on the pub, but we won’t be causing any disruption that’s isn’t deemed necessary as part of our sympathetic refurbishment.

Slow progress, but we will get there.

Yours

The team @ Rose & Crown Inn

Amazing! We can’t wait and it’s just amazing to see the pub finally being cared for. Thank you!!!

I've loved watching it. I've been taking tips from the outside work... We need to do similar to our house. Lol

Best wishes on the project and looking forward to seeing the finish.

Well done guys, what an exciting sight! Thank you x

Well done team, slowly but surely. It will be amazing when finished, can’t wait to be a regular visitor again. A time lapse camera would be amazing to see progress. Cheers 🍻

Let’s hope the hard work is rewarded by village folk using our great pub. That first pint will be magical!

Fantastic work and a pleasure to see the building being restored. Really looking forward to the opening. 😁

Looking forward to you opening. Well done to you all been watching the process. x

Fantastic, can’t wait to get in for a pint 🍺. Well done guys on sorting out our village pub 😊

Go Boys Go, Great Work Can't wait, Last Pub Standing !!

Excellent stuff team Rose & Crown. Building sites create noise and inconvenience, but they are always temporary and for the greater good. The old girl needs a makeover for the next generation of her time in the village. Thankfully that will now be as a community pub and not a house or a derelict building. Will be great to be back for a pint and a bite to eat very soon. 🍻👍

It’s looking better already!! Really can’t wait until we can pay our first visit!!!🍺🥂

Amazing! Can not wait. Noise is obviously inevitable in this situation! All for the greater good. Can’t wait to visit 😍

So looking forward to our village pub being the hub if our village well done 👍🏻🥃

Fantastic, well done all

You are all doing a great job ! Looks a lot better already. Make as much noise as you like 😀😀

All looking good, no disruption or noise issues from three doors away. Well done.

We're looking forward to going to the local once again great work

Don’t worry about the noise! We all want to see the pub open 🍻😁

Make as much mess as you like and noises.Our village needs it's pub back. Thank you to ever it concerns. 🙏👌

Fantastic and A BIG THANK FOR SAVING OUR VILLAGE PUB

Well done!

🙌🏼❤️👏🏼❤️🙌🏼

Great news! Do keep up the updates 😁

Following discussions by the Parish Council with both Uttlesford District and Essex County Councils a tree survey was arranged by Essex County Council on the Horse Chestnut by the Village Hall. The tree was shedding dead wood and branches and looked poorly and in a generally sorry state.

The result of the tree survey was not as gloomy as it was thought it would be and Essex County Council arranged for the necessary "trim" that the tree required (once permission had been obtained).

This lovely tree will be monitored on an annual basis to confirm that it has benefited from the work carried out and is still healthy.

Fantastic news have missed the pub well done to all concerned getting it up and running again 👏

Brilliant news, looking forward to the opening. Well done guys

Fabulous, well done to all involved... Looking forward to my first pint when she opens 👍🍻

I suppose you'll need a Jazz Band for the opening ceremony. Come on, make your pitch!

Great news

Nice to hear it will be in local ownership with people who care for the pub and local community

Fabulous news! Cannot wait to come and support the local pub 🥂👏

Great news! If you’d like Oliver Cromwell to come and open it, drop me a line.

Excellent Dean!! Really looking forward to moving to Ashdon (finally) and propping up the bar at the Rose and Crown! 👍🏼🔥🥂🔥👍🏼

Thank goodness for that. As someone who's slightly obsessed and geeky about older properties. It's been horrendous walking past it and seeing it literally fall apart.

Great news! Please take care of the medieval wall frieze!

👍🏻 look forward to the grand re-opening

Great news! 😁

Absolutely brilliant news

Wow great news..... Will you be ready for Wednesday velo ride?

Best news, so excited, can’t wait to support you
