Lucky Onion buys ‘iconic racing pub’ to add to its portfolio


The Lucky Onion will launch a new addition to its collection of boutique hotels and country pubs in the Cotswolds next month, with the unveiling of The Hollow Bottom.

Next month, the five-strong brand will expand with the 17th century Cotswold stone pub, which is said to have a ‘staple part’ of the racing community for decades.

Leading trainers, Nigel Twiston-Davies, Jonjo O’Neil and Fergal O’Brian live close by, with the reopening of The Hollow Bottom designed to capitalise on Cheltenham Festival.

The historic building features large recessed windows, low ceilings and exposed stone walls and timbers.

Executive chef for the group Ronnie Bonetti has created a new menu featuring classic pub dishes.

The Lucky Onion group is owned by Jade and Julian Dunkerton, co-founder at retail brand, Superdry.

Julian adds: “It is our ongoing commitment to restore historic buildings in the Cotswolds and Cheltenham. Racing is the heart of the local community as is The Hollow Bottom, we have gone above and beyond to ensure that locals and visitors are able to continue to celebrate both.”

The Hollow Bottom is the first pub in a series of new developments by The Lucky Onion with plans to develop multiple historic buildings in and around Cheltenham and the Cotswolds.

The Lucky Onion collective includes boutique hotels No. 131, and No.38 The Park, in Cheltenham, as well as critically acclaimed The Wheatsheaf, and restaurants The Tavern and The Wild Duck.
