PUB owners have announced a reopening date after a fire destroyed their kitchen two months ago.

Four fire engines were sent to The Crown Inn at Cerney Wick on Sunday, March 26 after an electric fault caused the kitchen to go up in flames.

Asha Indian Kitchen had moved into the Crown Inn in February after leaving a popular cocktail bar Somewhere Else in Cirencester.

The kitchen at the Crown Inn was fitted with new equipment to accommodate the new chefs, including a fridge which is believed to have caused the electrical fault that initially started the fire.

Owners have recently announced that the pub and its restaurant Asha  Indian Kitchen will reopen on Tuesday, June 13.

Foyez Rahman, manager at Asha Indian Kitchen, said: "The closure means we have had a chance to improve the kitchen and our offering.

“Asha and The Crown is coming back bigger and better, that I can promise.

“We have some great plans for the summer which include some events. It is great to be at a venue that has such a great outdoor space."
