3Sixty Restaurants, the James Horler-led group, has secured a 15th site for its Ego in a Pub format.

The group has taken on the former Vintage Inns site – the Fox Cub in Little Hoole, Lancashire. It will open on 18 May.

Horler told MCA in January that he was focussed on an organic rollout of its Ego brand with its own cash the preferred route.

He said last year he had looked at over 250 pub sites in its quest to grow its portfolio.
