Brakspear buys Cotswolds pub with rooms

Brakspear has completed the purchase of the The Lamb Public House.

Brakspear has completed the purchase of the freehold interest in The Lamb Public House, a historic Grade II-listed inn located in centre of Great Rissington, close to Bourton-on-the-Water.

Overlooking the Windrush valley, the 14-bedroom pub had been under family ownership for many years. Brakspear says ill health has prompted the business being offered to the market on a confidential basis.

The Lamb has a bar and restaurant with 80 covers, while externally there is a car park plus gardens with seating areas to the front, side and rear of the pub.

"We are delighted to announce the acquisition of The Lamb at Great Rissington, and it will be a fantastic addition to our estate," says Tom Davies, Brakspear CEO (pictured). "We have other businesses with rooms within the Cotswolds, which are thriving, so it’s an area we understand."

Brakspear is planning to invest in a refurbishment of The Lamb’s bar area and dining spaces through its own in-house design team.

"Our vision for The Lamb is to create a community hub while also offering a wonderful place to relax, stay and dine if visiting from further afield,” adds Brakspear’s business development director Gerard Winder. "Brakspear will be looking for a tenant with experience of the area and a strong background in food and beverage to take the business on a tenancy agreement."
