Father and son buy Worcester pub

Father & Son by Worcestershire Pub

A rural pub set in over an acre of land has been bought by father and son combo Matthew and Thomas Clarke seeking a lifestyle change.

Specialist commercial finance broker, Christie Finance helped a family with funding to purchase The Fox & Hounds Pub in Lulsley, Worcester.

The business has a strong local trade and puts on various festivals throughout the year.

Matthew and Thomas Clarke, both first time buyers to the sector, plan to introduce a food offering with support from Matthew’s wife Gillian and grow the number of events and weddings, with the goal of turning the business into a destination setting.

Nicole Jones, Finance Consultant of Christie Finance, said: “It was wonderful to help the Clarke Family to take over their first pub and with Thomas’ background in hospitality and Matthews’ team management skills, I am certain that they will put this pub on the map.”
