Cotswolds Inn sold in off-market deal | Article

Cotswolds pub The Fox at Lower Oddington has been sold in an off-market deal for an undisclosed sum.

The 16th century Gloucestershire inn with rooms has been sold to a private purchaser for an undisclosed price by real estate specialist Colliers, acting on behalf of owner Ian MacKenzie.

The Fox presently comprises a bar and restaurant with a menu championing quality seasonal British produce, a private dining room, plus accommodation in three bedrooms.

MacKenzie moved to the Cotswolds after graduating from university in 1968, and had been a local at The Fox before he bought it in 2002 in a deal also brokered by Colliers.

He later went on to steer The Fox to acclaim in a succession of awards, including winning Michelin Pub of the Year in 2004.

Peter Brunt, director in the Hotels Agency team at Colliers, said: “The Fox is a superb traditional restaurant and inn, benefitting from an ideal location in the so-called ‘Cotswolds golden triangle’ between Stow on the Wold and Chipping Norton.

“It was discreetly marketed in a highly confidential campaign which generated a high number of offers and keen competitive bidding, culminating in a sale which underlines the continuing strength of the market for pubs and hotels in the Cotswolds despite the impact of the pandemic upon the hospitality sector.”
