Oakman Inns’ CEO Peter Borg-Neal said: “We have agreed a 25-year free-of-tie deal with the Swanbourne Estate to lease The Betsey Wynne.

“It is a superb pub built in 2007 and we are already operating it as a fully-fledged Oakman Inn.”

The site in Amersham is a new build, as part of a large residential scheme in the town centre, and will open next spring.

Peter added: “Since the collapse of The Lazy Cow group last year we have been trying to obtain control of their former premises in Solihull.

“We are currently operating the site as a ‘tenancy at will’ and hope to sign a permanent deal in the very near future.

Once that has been sealed the site will become our third Beech House.”

The firm already has a Beech House in St Albans, Hertfordshire, and another in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire.

Oakman Inns owns a further 12 properties across Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Oxfordshire and Essex.

The firm is also in negotiations with a number of other sites and hopes to make further announcements in the near future.
