New management team take over popular pub


One of the Cotswold’s most picturesque pubs, the 18th Century Falcon Inn at Painswick, has unveiled a new management team.

New manager Lauren Hemmings and head chef Jake Haddon, promise exceptional service and a new home-cooked menu. Both are local to the area and have extensive experience in the hospitality industry.

As part of their new approach, The Falcon will be offering a 15% local discount to all in Painswick and the surrounding area – just for being neighbours – alongside teaming up with local walking groups and events. There’s also a new menu available, with more locally sourced ingredients featured.

Owned by Balfour Winery, one of England’s leading vineyards, The Falcon at Painswick has been serving this area of the Cotswold for almost 300 years. At the back of the pub is even the historic Falcon Bowls Club – which was established in 1554 and is the oldest club in the country. Whereas to the front is the famous St. Mary’s Church, with the 99 yew trees which surround it.

Speaking about her new role, Lauren said : “I am over the moon to be taking over such a historic, and important, Cotswold’s institution. The Falcon is such a beautiful site, and the reception Jake and I have had from the locals has been superb. We’re really looking forward to getting to know more of them over the coming months.”

The inn, which also has 11 characterful bedrooms as well as a dedicated private hire space, is a popular spot for weddings as well as serving their own award-winning English Wines.
