West Country operators Sarah Pert and Andy Taylor are set to open their second pub, The Five Alls, in Cheltenham, in collaboration with Star Pubs and Bars, the pub is expected to open in September.
It is their second refurbishment in 12 months after the partners opened their first pub, The Why Not Inn in Redditch, earlier this year.
The emphasis of the refurbished The Five Alls will be on ‘opulence, ambience and heritage’, offering a new experience for Cheltenham and Leckhampton patrons. It will reopen mid- September, in time for the Cheltenham Literature Festival, looking to create 25 new jobs.
The menu will be made up of an eclectic selection of small plates and platters, ideal for relaxed grazing and sharing. There will be world influences from tapas, mezze, thali and cicchetti.
Caren Geering, regional operations director, Star Pubs and Bars said: “Sarah and Andy have some great individual and combined experience, so it is fantastic to have them take on The Five Alls. They both have bags of energy and are full of lots of exciting ideas. I am not surprised to hear local people are thrilled with the news that they’ll be running the pub.”
Pert added: “Andy and I worked in Cheltenham together 10 years ago and have both wanted to run our own pub here for many years, so when the opportunity came up to take on The Five Alls, we leapt at it. It’s in a fantastic friendly neighbourhood and we’re ensuring our pub will be different to the other pubs on Bath Road.”
