Butcombe Brewing Company has revealed ambitions to double the number of rooms in its portfolio over the coming year.
The company, owned by Liberation Group, is aiming to achieve a total of 140 bedrooms through the next 12 months, with both acquisitions and refurbishments planned across the estate.
Butcombe recently acquired The Castle Inn in Lulworth Cove to mark its first move into Dorset and has told BH of plans to invest heavily into refurbishing the 16th century property in the new year.
The thatched pub with 12 bedrooms will be given a ‘sympathetic’ renovation with the aim to create another ‘iconic’ Butcombe pub.
The acquisition of The Castle Inn marked the fifth takeover for the Liberation Group this year, after the company acquired four pubs in the West Country for £4.3m.
The number of pubs in the Butcombe estate currently totals 35.
The company recently reopened The Methuen Arms in West Wiltshire following an extensive refurbishment after acquiring the property in November 2016.
