Barkby Group PLC is pleased to announce that it has acquired the leasehold of the Eliot Arms,   a 19th century village pub with 7 rooms in South Cerney, Gloucestershire. 


The Eliot Arms has undergone a comprehensive refurbishment and is now a destination venue in the area, offering exceptional service, food and accommodation.


The pub marks the Group's second acquisition this year, joining Barkby's portfolio of very well-regarded pubs in the Cotswolds region, including The Bull Hotel in Fairford and The Harcourt Arms in Stanton Harcourt. Barkby Pubs' portfolio now consists of nine premises with a total of 75 rooms.

"The Eliot Arms' location in the Gloucestershire countryside is highly complementary to our existing portfolio of premium pubs. The pub will offer a high-class F&B and accommodation experience, and I very much welcome the site into the Barkby Group."
