You may have heard the rumours about the sale of The Bell.
The Town Council has been in touch with the Lionhearth Group who have confirmed that they are in the process of purchasing it.
The MD of the Lionhearth Group states:
The Lionhearth Group run several successful pubs in the local area (which you may know?), they include.
- The Chequers, Churchill, Chipping Norton; and
- The Swan, Ascott-under-Wychwood.
We have also recently acquired and are due to re-open The Salford Inn at Salford within weeks. The Cock Inn at Combe is also to be refurbished shortly which is to reopen as a pub, with food. Finally, we own The Plough at Kingham, which is leased to a very capable tenant.
As with the pubs we currently operate, they are central to the community they serve. Our intentions for The Bell would continue the same ethos that underpins our values. Our investment would of course not only extensively improve the pub but would be of benefit to the community. We’re in the business of creating memories through fantastic service, food and drink and we fully intend to continue this vain at the Bell, we’re excited at the prospects of doing so.
