Historic Gloucestershire pub close to reopening six years after pouring its last pint

The drinks will soon be being poured again at a 300-year-old Gloucestershire pub - six years after it last shut its doors.

The Grade II Listed Crown Inn in Minchinhampton was bought by Superdry founder Julian Dunkerton's Lucky Onion Group last year.

Plans were then submitted to transform the former coaching inn with the ground floor pub being completely refurbished.

The application also sought to change the use of floors one and two to residential use and create three two-bedroom flats.

The plans, that were submitted by SF Planning Limited were approved by Stroud District Council last month and work is now underway ahead of a grand reopening later in the summer.

In a statement on their website SF Planning said they were "pleased to have obtained planning permission for the refurbishment of The Crown Inn in Minchinhampton.

"Positive pre-application discussions took place with Stroud District Council prior to the submission of the planning application.

"The application required careful consideration due to the Grade II listed status of the building and the substantial local support for the retention of the existing public house use.

"SF Planning successfully coordinated the application providing convincing information to planning officers and the conservation team for approval."

The Lucky Onion group are also undertaking a refurbishment of Cheltenham's George Hotel and own numerous other high-end pubs and eateries across the county.
