Brakspear, the pub operator and brewer, is opening the Frogmill near Cheltenham after an eight month refurbishment.

The 16tth century inn in Shipton Oliffe, near Andoversfold, Gloucestershire, is now Brakspear’s biggest managed site and comprises a 100-cover restaurant, bar, 28 bedrooms and wedding and conference facilities for up to 150 guests, housed within extensive grounds.

Brakspear purchased the Grade II listed Frogmill in December 2015, with the redevelopment including creating a bar in a former cellar space and transforming the inn’s former bar area into a snug with open fire.

Brakspear chief executive Tom Davies said: “The redevelopment of the Frogmill has been an extensive project, which has seen our biggest investment in a site to date. We are really excited about the potential of this fantastic inn.”

The Frogmill takes Brakspear’s managed estate to 12 sites.
