    The Croft gastropub in Saltash to close, head chef to open new restaurant

    After just a few months of operation, The Croft gastropub in Saltash is set to close its doors at the end of September. The pub, which was taken over by head chef Lee Calver in February, described the venture as a “short-lived dream” for Calver, who was previously a chef in the Royal Navy. Calver has now found a new opportunity in the Plymouth area, where he plans to open a new restaurant. The Croft stated that this new venture will allow Calver to focus once again on fine-dining food.

    The closure of The Croft was first announced in July, with the pub taking to social media to address rumors. In a statement, they confirmed that September 30 would be their final day of operation. They expressed their support for Calver’s decision to explore a new opportunity and thanked their customers for their loyalty over the years.

    Before closing, The Croft is making sure to give their customers one last chance to experience their popular Sunday roast. The last Sunday roast service will take place on September 24, and the pub is urging customers to book in advance due to limited spaces. They also mentioned a closing down party on September 30, which will feature live music and food and drink deals.

    The Croft’s closure is the end of an era for this popular Saltash gastropub, but it also marks an exciting new chapter for head chef Lee Calver as he embarks on his new restaurant venture in Plymouth.
