Winner of the British Institute of Innkeeping’s (BII) annual Licensee of the Year award 2017, Mark Higgs has expanded his pub portfolio by acquiring The Sun Inn, Hook Norton.

Bought in partnership with executive chef and director Matthew Ayers, the Oxfordshire-based pub has a restaurant, six en suite bedrooms, a function room as well as large rear beer garden and terrace.

Although their tenancy doesn’t officially start until 1 November, Higgs and Ayres said they are already working towards “producing a very strong kitchen that will focus on everything local and seasonal without too much fuss and a ‘keep it simple’ approach.”

Managing director James Clarke added: “The Sun Inn is a very important site for us being in the centre of Hook Norton, and we are excited to see what Mark, Matthew and the team can bring.”
