Cotswolds Inn sold in off-market deal

The 16th century Gloucestershire inn with rooms has been sold to a private purchaser for an undisclosed price by real estate specialist Colliers, acting on behalf of owner Ian MacKenzie

Cotswolds pub The Fox at Lower Oddington has been sold in an off-market deal for an undisclosed sum.

The 16th century Gloucestershire inn with rooms has been sold to a private purchaser for an undisclosed price by real estate specialist Colliers, acting on behalf of owner Ian MacKenzie.

The Fox presently comprises a bar and restaurant with a menu championing quality seasonal British produce, a private dining room, plus accommodation in three bedrooms.

MacKenzie moved to the Cotswolds after graduating from university in 1968, and had been a local at The Fox before he bought it in 2002 in a deal also brokered by Colliers.

He later went on to steer The Fox to acclaim in a succession of awards, including winning Michelin Pub of the Year in 2004.

Peter Brunt, director in the Hotels Agency team at Colliers, said: “The Fox is a superb traditional restaurant and inn, benefitting from an ideal location in the so-called ‘Cotswolds golden triangle’ between Stow on the Wold and Chipping Norton.

“It was discreetly marketed in a highly confidential campaign which generated a high number of offers and keen competitive bidding, culminating in a sale which underlines the continuing strength of the market for pubs and hotels in the Cotswolds despite the impact of the pandemic upon the hospitality sector.”
