Flatcappers, the West Country pub group led by Alex Reilley and ex-Bibendum manager Pierre Woodford, has completed on its third pub. The group has acquired the Battleaxes in Wraxall, Somerset, close to the famous Victorian neo-Gothic Tyntesfield estate, on a 15-year free-of-tie lease. The food-led pub is now set to close for refurbishment until late summer. Reilley, who also heads the 13-strong Loungers bar business, said that the aim was for Flatcappers to rival Loungers in terms of sites. The company’s two other pubs are the Bell in Frome, Wiltshire, and the Castle in Bradford-upon-Avon, Somerset
