Claude Bosi acquires Ludlow hotel with brother

11 August 2014 by

Two-Michelin-starred chef Claude Bosi has acquired a hotel with his brother Cedric, in his old haunt of Ludlow, Shropshire.

The two brothers have taken over the 10-bedroom Town House hotel, which is currently undergoing "a light redecoration" before reopening in September.

Claude left Ludlow in 2007 when he relocated his Hibiscus restaurant to London, while Cedric is based in the town where he runs the Charlton Arms, a pub with nine bedrooms.

There will be no restaurant at the Town House hotel, but guests will be offered a continental breakfast.

Last year Claude bought out his investors in Hibiscus, Michael Patton and Tim Woodcock, to retain full control of the business, which has since undergone a total refurbishment.

Meanwhile, he sold his stake in two London pubs - the Fox & Grapes in Wimbledon and the Malt House in Fulham - to his brother Cedric and the investors. However, he remains as a consultant to the business.

• For an insight into Claude Bosi's redesigned Hibiscus restaurant, read this week's issue of The Caterer, published 15 August.
