Fuller’s has completed the acquisition of two new pubs - De La Hayes in Bourton on the Water and The Rising Sun in Wootton.

De La Hayes is a Grade II listed property with river views, in the Cotswolds. Fuller’s plans to refurbish the site to create an all-encompassing pub, with work beginning next month.

The Rising Sun is located in New Forest and comprises a large ground floor trading area, customer beer garden, children’s play area and a paddock which can be used for events.

Commenting on the sale, Kevin Marsh, head of licensed leisure at Savills, said: “We are pleased to complete the sale of these two beautiful pubs in sought after tourist honeypot locations.

“The properties have an enormous amount of character and history which will add the exceptional experience that Fullers is well-known for. We continue to see strong demand for pubs in tourist heavy locations.”

Last month, Fuller’s announced it had partnered with Rest Less, a digital community and advocate for people in their 50s or older, to attract older workers back to employment.

The premium pub and hotel operator launched a campaign in October, posting on Rest Less’ job board across its business and geographical area.
