Liberation Group’s Butcombe Pubs & Inns business (a Regency member) has acquired two sites from OHH Pub Company.
The Northey Arms in Box, Wiltshire, and The Rising Sun in Backwell, North Somerset, joined the Butcombe estate of pubs and inns at the end of last month.
Jonathan Lawson, CEO of Liberation Group comments:
“We are delighted to welcome these fantastic pubs to the Butcombe side of the family. These two new sites are a great fit for us, both geographically and operationally and they offer an exciting opportunity for us to deliver our award-winning food, drink and hospitality experience to locals and visitors alike.”
The acquisition is in line with Butcombe Pubs & Inns’ longer-term strategy to expand its presence throughout the West Country via the acquisition of predominantly freehold pubs capable of supporting a premium, food-led offering with accommodation.
Butcombe will incorporate the acquired sites and associated employees into its existing portfolio and intends to invest substantial capital into both of the businesses to support future growth.
