Sadly, Matt Ford left the pub on 23 March. We are really grateful to Matt for building up the pub over the last 7 years, and wish him every success and happiness in his new ventures.

We are delighted to announce that the committee has found an excellent new tenant, and we are very much looking forward to the next chapter in the life of the Seven Stars.

Our new tenant is a company called The Seven Stars at Marsh Baldon Ltd. which is owned by Mark Higgs. Mark is currently the lessee of three other successful village pubs: The Castle at Edgehill (https://castleatedgehill.co.uk/); The Red Lion at Hellidon (https://redlionathellidon.co.uk/) and The Sun Inn at Hook Norton (https://thesuninn-hooknorton.co.uk/), and also is a part owner of an associated catering company. Together they form a small pub group called Free Spirit Pubs (website here: The Free Spirit Pub Company - A collection of country pubs, rooms, weddings & events (freespiritpubs.co.uk)).

We are extremely pleased to have found Mark. His vision matches the vision which the community set out 7 years ago when we bought the pub and he has the experience and longstanding team to be able to take that vision forward. You will have seen some new decoration to the outside of the pub, and when he takes over, Mark is planning some internal and garden refurbishment before opening when Covid allows – we can’t wait!

Mark has asked us to pass on this message:

“I’m super excited to bring this pub back to life again after what has been a difficult year for all of us during this pandemic.

Village pubs are my life, I live for the chatter at the bar, serving great food and most importantly delivering a very important part to the local community. Myself and the team have decades of experience and we truly believe that the most important part of a great village pub is genuine, warm hospitality. I can’t wait to meet you all and create some wonderful memories, a fantastic pub that we can all be very proud of both locally and further afield.

I’d like to thank Matt and the committee for all their support and guidance over the last few month.

Warmest wishes, Mark”
