Rose & Crown St Albans Consultation

Updated: Sep 14, 2021



On Friday 10th September Simon Knight Architects hosted a consultation on the redevelopment of the Rose & Crown pub in St Albans. The aim of this project is to make the pub a viable commercial proposition moving forwards, whilst retaining the grade II listed building use as a pub.


We had over 100 people attend over a two hour period, and received some really constructive feedback, both in person and via our website. There is a strong appetite to see the pub re-opened and brought back to life. We thank everyone for coming and their comments.


Comments included:

The minimal harm to the existing listed buildings is more than outweighed by the overall benefits the scheme will bring.

I thoroughly support this venture to breathe new life into this neglected & now decrepit pub. I consider that the benefit of this proposal can only enhance the property & surrounding area.

A very impressive proposal. Wonderful to see the pub retained as a pub. Excellent to see the house refurbished and put back to its intended use as a home and also delighted to see the demolished building being reinstated and given a 21st century use of office space.
