Gear change for Chastleton’s Greedy Goose

25 10 21 Greedy Goose inn hero

A cosy inn in the Cotswold’s has come under the new stewardship of well-known collector car dealer Tom Hartley Junior, in a sale agreed by commercial property specialists Colliers. 


The Greedy Goose, in Chastleton, in the northwest of the Cotswold’s Area of Outstanding National Beauty, had been owned by hands-off investors since 2006 and run by a local management team. The restaurant and pub which accommodates up to 100 table covers, alongside a 25 pitch-camping pitch, including five glamping pods, has been sold from an asking price of £700,000. 

This is the first hospitality business Tom has purchased. He said: “I’ve spent many years operating in the collector car market, but this is my first time taking on a pub. I’m really looking forward to getting to know this local business and expanding my knowledge of the hospitality sector. We’ve seen over the last year how much people value the opportunity to get away and get closer to nature, albeit with some home comforts. I’m excited to see what this opportunity brings. Initially we’re going to close the pub for redevelopment, to bring it in line with the standards of everything else under my business umbrella.” 

The pub is ideally located close to many of the attractions of the Cotswold’s, particularly the National Trust’s Chastleton House and the Neolithic and Bronze Age Rollright Stones. 

Peter Brunt, director in Colliers' Hotels Agency added: “The Greedy Goose is a well-known business in the area, providing good quality food for not only holiday makers but the local residents as well. Luxury is definitely a topic which Tom knows well, and I’m interested to see how he develops this business further.”
