The Crown, Silverdale, on the Market: Opportunity for New Ownership

After careful consideration, we announce the decision to offer The Crown, Silverdale for sale. While it has been an extremely difficult decision for us, we believe this presents a unique opportunity for a new chapter in the pub’s storied history. Situated on the corner of Brook Street and the local ‘Silverdale Park’, this welcoming old mining village pub has been a cherished part of the community, offering a lively, friendly bar atmosphere and a welcoming lounge.

Deana has been at the helm of The Crown since July 2020, and we want to express our thanks for her commitment to the pub, especially in navigating us through the challenges posed by the pandemic and the ever-evolving landscape of the hospitality industry. Her dedication is evident in  the pub’s legacy. We are pleased to share that Deana has agreed to work with us during the period of change to ensure the Crown continues to serve it’s community.

The decision to sell The Crown comes from our appreciation that the pub market has evolved significantly, and as a local brewery we are now targeting suburban and town centre locations where our brewery tap offer thrives.

We believe that The Crown would be best suited as a free house with a Landlord who has the freedom to trade with an entrepreneurial spirit. We have been proud owner for many years now, and while the decision to sell The Crown marks the end of an era, it also presents an exciting opportunity for someone to take it forward.

While bidding farewell to The Crown is bittersweet, we are committed to finding a new custodian who will cherish its legacy and ensure its continued success. Throughout this process the Brewery will ensure the pub will remain open to prospective applicants. We extend our sincere thanks to Deana and her team for their dedication and resilience, particularly during those challenging times, and for their commitment to supporting the Silverdale community.
