THE PIG to open The Village Pub this summer

UK: Boutique hotel collection THE PIG is set to open The Village Pub in Barnsley this summer, marking the group’s first pub project.

The Grade II-listed classic British pub is located in the Cotswold village of Barnsley.

Originally three cottages, the buildings were converted  in the early 18th century into The Greyhound Inn. By the 1920s, the pub changed its name to The Village Inn.

It most recently operated as The Boot for two years before THE PIG founders, Judy and Robin Hutson, repositioned and renovated the site to become The Village Pub.

Reopening in June, the pub will serve traditional English food alongside local ales and wines. It also features six bedrooms.

Mrs Hutson said: “We are all very excited about The Village Pub. We have never had a pub before and of course everyone has their own idea of how a perfect pub should feel. In our case, this 18th century building is a very good starting point. Low ceilings, huge oak beams and multiple fireplaces all feature, together with cosy bedrooms which we are updating to The Pig Hotel standard. 

“Just being in the space automatically strikes a Dickensian Tavern cord and the strong moody colour palette I have chosen only emphasises this. Of course, there will be lots of eclectic collectibles to feast the eyes on and, while not my area, I know the delicious menu and traditional ales will complement,” she added.

Barnsley House Hotel was acquired in January 2024 and will open later this year under THE PIG brand in September.
