TELEVISION presenter Jeremy Clarkson is rumoured to be buying a pub in a Cotswolds village.

Hawkstone Brewery, which was launched by the TV presenter two years ago, is thought to be buying the Coach & Horses in Bourton-on-the-Water.

It is the talk of the village but no-one can confirm if the rumours are true.

The pub, which is on the A429 Stow Road in Bourton, just around the corner from the brewery, has been looking for a landlord.

It is currently listed as a ‘retail partnership tenancy’ by pub company Stonegate Group, which says it is looking for an “innovative and skilful publican”.

According to the group’s website, it has a potential turnover of £367,000 and is available for an introductory rent of £481 per week.

“This is an excellent opportunity to operate a business at one of the busiest tourist destinations in the country,” Stonegate says on its website.

“The entrance from the car park opens into a charming main bar that can accommodate 20 customers. Traditionally decorated with wooden and flagstone flooring throughout, and an original inglenook fireplace, guests will feel at home in its warm and cosy environment.

“Emphasis must be placed on the rear trading space potential as a multi-purpose area, and if paired with a clear marketing strategy could boost business growth.

“The business also benefits from five letting rooms and a large garden area. Stonegate Pub Partners are seeking an experienced retailer to take on this fantastic opportunity.”

The Coach & Horses is currently closed but was operating until recently as both a pub and an Indian restaurant.

We have asked Stonegate Group about the pub’s current ownership.

We’ve also asked Hawkstone Brewery about the rumours that it is taking over.

Mr Clarkson, the star of Clarkson's Farm and the Grand Tour,  has had plans to build a restaurant at his Diddly Squat Farm rejected by both West Oxfordshire District Council and at appeal by a planning inspector.

Residents had raised concerns about the amount of extra traffic the farm had brought to Chadlington.
