A former Greene King regional manager is to open his third freehold pub in a year this week. Toby Brett, 31, worked for Wadworth’s and Greene King for a total of nine years before starting his own company, the Banwell House Pub Company a year ago - he spent three and bit years at Greene King just before setting up his own business. Banwell House has bought freeholds from Punch, Enterprise Inns and a private vendor so far - with all pubs within a half hour of Bath. He opened the Duke of Cumberland in Holcombe, Somerset a year ago, a former Punch with a skittle alley. The Three Horseshoes, Chapmanslade, Wiltshire followed - a former Enterprise Inns pub. This week, he re-opens the Rose & Crown in Trowbridge which has been closed for two years. Brett said: “The first thing that we did was get rid of the pink exterior; I think it is better known as the ‘Pink Pub’ than the Rose and Crown. “The Rose and Crown is going to offer a good selection of real ales, some excellent wines all by the glass. We are using local suppliers for the food which will be served all day. "The Rose and Crown will open at 9am every morning for coffee and cakes and will be open straight through to midnight seven days a week.” Brett was also a finalist in the Association of Licensed Multiple Retailers awards for tenanted and managed regional managers a few years ago.
