Cotswold inn sold for £700,000

A cosy pub in the Cotswolds will temporarily close for redevelopment after being sold from an asking price of £700,000.

The Greedy Goose in Chastleton, near Moreton-in-Marsh, has come under the new stewardship of collector car dealer Tom Hartley Junior, in a sale agreed by commercial property specialists Colliers.

Situated in the northwest of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding National Beauty, the Greedy Goose had been owned by hands-off investors since 2006 and run by a local management team.

The restaurant and pub accommodates up to 100 table covers alongside a 25 pitch-camping pitch, including five glamping pods.

Tom Hartley Junior said: "I've spent many years operating in the collector car market, but this is my first time taking on a pub. I'm really looking forward to getting to know this local business and expanding my knowledge of the hospitality sector.

"We've seen over the last year how much people value the opportunity to get away and get closer to nature, albeit with some home comforts.

"I'm excited to see what this opportunity brings. Initially we're going to close the pub for redevelopment, to bring it in line with the standards of everything else under my business umbrella."

The pub is located close to many of the attractions of the Cotswolds, particularly the National Trust's Chastleton House and the Neolithic and Bronze Age Rollright Stones.

Peter Brunt, director in Collier's Hotels team added: "The Greedy Goose is a well-known business in the area, providing good quality food for not only holiday makers but local residents as well. Luxury is definitely a topic which Tom knows well, and I'm interested to see how he develops this business further."
