Duncombe Arms in Staffordshire to expand with 10 bedrooms

A Staffordshire pub owned by a descendant of the Greenall gin family is to expand with the opening of 10 bedrooms in December.

The Duncombe Arms in the village of Ellastone, near Ashbourne, is owned by Johnny and Laura Greenall who bought the closed pub, which had previously been owned by Enterprise Inns, after deciding to reinstate it as the hub of the village.

Dating from the 1850s, the Duncombe Arms reopened following a major renovations in March 2012 and today is run by the Greenalls alongside general manager James Oddy and head chef Chris Gallagher.

The new bedrooms will open in the Walnut House, a building next to the pub. They will be individually designed by Laura Greenall in "countryside chic style", with fabrics by Mulberry and wallpaper by Colefax & Fowle and views over Dove Valley.

Prices will start at £140 per room, including breakfast.
