The Barkby Group Plc ('Barkby') has announced that it has completed its acquisition of three gastropubs and 38 hotel rooms from a boutique hospitality group in Gloucestershire and admission to the NEX Exchange Growth Market.
The boutique hospitality group acquired the lease for their first gastropub, The Five Alls, in August 2012 before buying the freehold of The Plough in March 2015. The tenancy lease for The Bull Hotel was entered into in August 2016 and, following a major refurbishment, reopened for trading in July 2017.

- Giles Clarke, Chairman, The Barkby Group Plc
