Fivehead pub has dramatic purple paint makeover
IF you go into Fivehead village today, you are in for a big surprise.
The Crown Inn pub with Teasels restaurant has undergone a dramatic makeover and is now purple.
Steve and Jacqui Chastell, who have owned the building for seven years, said they decided to go for the lilac lick of paint after considering it for the past few months.
Steve said: “The previous colour had turned into a mucky magnolia and it blended in because we looked like a house.
“We wanted something that would stand out so people knew where we were and it has done what it was supposed to do because the whole village is talking about it.
“There have been some people taking the mickey out of us but we have only done it to encourage more trade – people would not have been happy if we had closed.”
The work took place last week and took around two-and-a-half days to complete.
