Stone is a village in Buckinghamshire, situated south west of Aylesbury. The Rose & Crown has excellent frontage on the busy A418 (Thame to Aylesbury road). We understand it is the only independently owned freehouse in Stone & Hartwell.


The Rose & Crown is principally a 2 storey rendered stone-built property under a pitched roof. The extensively refurbished internal trading area provides an atmospheric bar catered to by a wooden servery. A mixture of fixed and loose seating caters to c. 20 covers. Dining covers are offered both to the front and rear with a total of 45 covers served. In addition, there is a private dining room at ground floor level which is currently utilised for domestic accommodation. Back out of house areas include a ground floor cellar, very well-equipped commercial kitchen and prep/wash up area.

The domestic accommodation consists of 2 double bedrooms, lounge, office and bathroom. Externally, there is a covered and heated patio replete with firepit. The fenced, and re-turfed, beer garden provides children's play equipment and a further 40 external covers, subject to layout. In addition there is a 10-space car park with on-street parking also available. 



The area of the public house site and car park is 0.27 acres. The ground floor footprint (GEA) extends to 185m² (1,991ft²). These measurements are taken from digital mapping and are approximate.
