Oakman Inns & Restaurants has added three new outlets to its portfolio: the Betsey Wynne in Swanbourne, a site in Amersham in a residential development in the town centre and former Lazy Cow premises in Solihull.
Oakman Inns’ CEO and founder, Peter Borg-Neal, said: ‘The Betsey Wynne is a superb pub built in 2007 and we are already operating it as a fully-fledged Oakman Inn. The site in Amersham will open in the spring of 2017.’ He added: ‘Since the collapse of The Lazy Cow group last year we have been trying to obtain control of their former premises in Solihull. We are currently operating the site as a ‘Tenancy at Will’ and hope to sign a permanent deal in the very near future. Once that has been sealed the site will become our third Beech House.’
Oakman are in negotiations on a number of other sites, he said.
