Giancarlo Ungaro, General Manager The Crown & Thistle is proud that the inaugural V4B Award finalist evening is another exciting chapter of the Crown & Thistle’s history:

The Crown & Thistle has been part of the Vale’s history for over 400 years. It has provided welcoming and appreciated hospitality for Douglas Fairbank Jnr, Margaret Thatcher, John Ruskin and tens of thousands of less well-known patrons, who have all received the same level of courteous, caring service over the centuries.

Our menus might have changed and we are certainly more adventurous with our Mediterranean-inspired menus and fresh hand-crafted pizzas, but our hopes and aspirations remain the same. To provide our guests with delicious food, drink and comfortable rooms prepared with skill and served with care.

We are therefore delighted to continue that tradition of warm hospitality and enthusiastic community support for this – the inaugural V4B Awards. We wish all those entering the very best of luck and look forward to welcoming the finalists in March to offer our heartiest congratulations for having made it through to that stage.
