You may remember that earlier this year, along with a few good friends (and usual victims), I invested a small amount in a lovely pub in Great Horkesley–outside Colchester on the Essex/Suffolk border.
The pub has been doing amazingly well. Earlier in the summer, Ed and his team made the final five of the Best Restaurant category in Suffolk Magazine. And then there was a nice mention in The Independent. And just the other week, Ed won a fantastic contest offering early-stage entrepreneurs a package of business support worth £50,000. Just quoting from the article…”Included in the prize are PR consultancy and implementation from Voice to the value of £15,000; design consultancy and creative services from Zeal to the value of £15,000; and advertising in the East Anglian Daily Times to the value of £10,000.”
If you have a spare Saturday and are in the Colchester area, please drop by the pub and say hi to Ed for me! Check the Rose & Crown Web site for location and contact details. Congratulations Ed!
