The St Tudy Inn in north Cornwall, owned by chef Emily Scott, has been granted planning permission to add guest rooms to the property.
Scott, who used to run the Harbour restaurant in Port Isaac until she sold it to Nathan Outlaw in 2013, took over the St Tudy Inn earlier this year.
The new rooms, which will be located in a barn currently used for storage purposes, are expected to launch in spring 2016.
The barn will be converted into four double bedrooms, each with en suite bathroom facilities. It will be able to accommodate up to eight guests in total.
Scott said: "Many of our customers ask if we have accommodation too, and it has always been my dream to offer somewhere for people to stay as well as eat.
"The food and customer experience at St Tudy Inn are both incredibly important to me, and I think offering rooms will only add to this experience. Whether they are local or from further afield, it will enable guests to have a mini-holiday. They can enjoy dinner with the knowledge that they won't need to worry about travel at the end of the evening."
Scott uses local suppliers at the pub including Padstow Kitchen Garden, Total Produce, Button Meats, Matthew Stevens, Fish for Thought, Deli Farm charcuterie and Da Bara Bakery.
The pub itself has stripped back furnishings, simplified colour scheme and fresh flowers on the tables.
Menus are divided into starters, mains and puddings, with main courses starting at £10 at lunch, and £12 at supper.
In addition to running the village pub in St Tudy, Scott continues to run her private catering business, the Harbour Kitchen.
