Cotswold pub and restaurant reveals expansion plans

While some pubs are struggling others are doing very well - and a pub near Tetbury looks very much like the cat that got the cream (or something like that).

Plans to expand the pub, restaurant and hotel at Shipton Moyne near Tetbury are afoot with owners awaiting a decision from Cotswold District Council.

The Cat And Custard Pot Inn, which fronts The Street in the village south of Tetbury wants to convert a cottage adjoining its buildings to "additional dining space and bedroom suites".

If it goes ahead the alterations at the inn, which is in an area of outstanding natural beauty, would see the restaurant and café expand from 204 square metres to include an additional 54 square metres, and the hotel add an extra 22 square metres to its 177 square metres.

A letter from planning and development manager, Kevin Field, advising those readying themselves to make a decision concludes the developments would "have no significant environmental effects having regard to its nature, size and location and therefore will not require the submission of an environmental impact assessment".
