The founders of Turf to Table, a gastropub chain with locations in Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire, have left the company following its acquisition by The Barkby Group.

Barkby, previously known as Sovereign Mines of Africa, agreed to buy Turf to Table in June, with the deal comprising three gastropubs with 38 rooms.

The business was founded by Sebastian and Lana Snow in 2008, who previously ran Snows on the Green in Shepherd’s Bush.

The collection is made up of the The Five Alls, The Plough in Kelmscott and The Bull in Fairford.

Rupert Fraser, chief executive of Barkby, added: “I’d like to thank Sebastian and Lana for all their efforts during the transition from Turf to Table Ltd to the Barkby Group following completion of the acquisition in June and I wish them all the best for the future.

“Group sales remain strong, with good occupancy rates in September across all sites and significant demand and visibility on bookings for the Christmas period.”
