Rose & Crown cuts the ribbon on new Lewes location
The Rose & Crown cut the ribbon in a ceremony sponsored by the Lewes Chamber of Commerce Dec. 14. Located just off the corner of Second and Market street in Lewes in the Hotel Rodney, the Rose & Crown has been open for approximately five weeks, and according to part owner Jay Caputo, the business has been better than expected. Caputo partnered with the owners of Hotel Rodney and totally remodeled the bar and restaurant, incorporating the hotel lobby with the bar area.
