A family affair at The Rose & Crown in Northamptonshire

Christie Finance, a specialist commercial finance broker, has recently assisted two sisters to secure funding to acquire the leasehold of The Rose & Crown Pub in Yardley Hastings, Northamptonshire.

The Rose & Crown is a popular traditional English village pub, which sits on part of the Castle Ashby Estate and has an outstanding reputation for food and service with locals and visitors alike.

Our clients, Claire Leaton and Tara Dunkley, contacted Christie Finance to help arrange the funding to buy the business, as they were keen to take over the pub as their father focused on other business ventures. Claire has been working in the business since 2010 with Tara also working in the pub during their father's ownership.

The pub is held free of tie and a new lease was recently agreed, with the sisters planning on giving the pub a fresh coat of paint and expanding the events held at the business.

Nicole Jones, Finance Consultant at Christie Finance, advised and secured funding on very competitive terms from a High Street Lender. Commenting on the deal, Nicole said "It was a pleasure to help Claire and Tara find the right funding to purchase The Rose & Crown, it is a great business and has two great owners to take over the reins from their father and grow the business even further."
