Mr and Mrs Beamish have worked in hotels across the country and had been searching for a 'foodie pub' in the Cotswolds for several years.

Mr Beamish said: “We took our time to find the right one and this is it.

“It is pretty much there. We aren’t planning to change a great deal about it other than bringing our personalities and energy to freshen it up a little.

“What we are hoping to do is open the doors to villagers and people in the area and inviting them to come and say hello.”
