A look at the latest restaurants, hotels, pubs and bars to open their doors
Sheep on Sheep Street
Pub operator Brakspear has reopened the Grapevine in Gloucestershire as the Sheep on Sheep Street after a major refurbishment. The 17th-century building retains its historic charm with a contemporary feel. The redesigned bar and restaurant is dominated by a central, full-length bar and the site also offers a remodelled garden and rear patio area. The pub offers 10 British gins, including the locally distilled Cotswolds Gin, as well as 10 craft beers and a selection of Brakspear cask ales. The menu is based around the wood-fired oven, with a range of gourmet southern Italian-style pizzas. Bedrooms have been given a fresh townhouse feel.
