Fa­mil­iar site brew­ing up a new fas­cia

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A COF­FEE chain is cre­at­ing up to 10 jobs with the open­ing of a new branch.

Costa has con­verted the for­mer pub The Crown in Chal­font St Giles into it lat­est fran­chise, which is be­ing of­fi­cially launched to­mor­row (Fri­day).

A Costa spokesman

said: “As with all our new store open­ings, we will do all that we can to in­te­grate our­selves with the lo­cal com­mu­nity, get­ting in­volved with events, pro­vid­ing the store as a meet­ing place and help­ing with fundrais­ing.”

The build­ing’s prime lo­ca­tion in the high street makes it a fa­mil­iar sight for vil­lagers and vis­i­tors alike, par­tic­u­larly as it fea­tured in the 1971 film Dads’ Army, an episode of Ham­mer House of Hor­ror in 1980, and Big Job, a 1965 film star­ring Sid James which starts with a bank rob­bery in the mocked-up pub. The Crown closed in Oc­to­ber last year.
