A HISTORIC pub bought by a co-founder of fashion label Superdry is set to reopen at noon today, Friday.

Entrepreneur Julian Dunkerton snapped up The Crown in Minchinhampton in September 2018 to add to his Lucky Onion group of hotels, restaurants and pubs.

Works to transform the 300-year-old hostelry, which closed seven years ago, are now complete.

The much anticipated opening is set to take place at noon.

The renovation of the 18th century building, which originally opened in 1715, has retained 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 Princess Anne’s local and is a stone’s throw from Gatcombe Park.

The pub will be serving up an understated yet classic British menu from chef, Ronnie Bonetti.
