On Monday 12th April The Rose & Crown in the west Norfolk coastal village of Snettisham will be throwing its arms open ( at a distance of course) to welcome their much missed customers to eat, drink and be merry in the lovely R&C garden, and showing off its brand new, sky blue, Beach Hut bar, built by local business and loyal R&C customers, ALC.
Also on show will be the airy (very important) and heated ( also very important) shiny new double marquee.
Anthony Goodrich (owner R&C) said: " We hope our customers have all stayed well and safe through these difficult months. To see friends and families reunited in the wonderfully relaxed, convivial and welcoming surroundings of The Rose & Crown is going to be a huge thrill.”
Until 17th May, Government rules only permit eating and drinking outdoors, with a maximum of six people from different households or any number from two households at one table. Happily, between the marquee and the newly refurbished terrace there is plenty of space for customers to once again tuck into The R&C’s Ultimate Burger, or famous Fish and Chips, or share one of The R&C’s new Seafood or Ploughman’s platters with friends ( imagine!) over a proper pint or glass of wine. Ring or email to book your table now.
Donna Herbert, Anglia Log Cabins said : “We are proud to have worked on the R&C’s new Beach Hut Bar, and on the upgrade and landscaping of the garden during lockdown. We had our wedding at The R&C 31 years ago, and our family have been regular customers since, by the log fire in the Back bar during the winter, and in the summer before, during and after (!) cricket.”
And husband Eddie Herbert added: "We are booked in on Day One to celebrate seeing old friends, our work with The R&C and the very special place The R&C holds in our lives, and that of the community."
The Rose & Crown has been no lockdown Sleeping Beauty, in fact it’s been buzzing. Wonderfully comfortable new beds, new curtains and furniture, paint pots, scrubbing brushes, garden forks, the place is glowing! And, with the help of ALC, the garden looks better than ever.
