Owners of No. 131 to take over The Hollow Bottom pub

A popular horse-racing themed pub, which closed earlier in 2018, will reopen this year under the management of The Lucky Onion hospitality group.

The Lucky Onion hospitality group, owned by Superdry CEO Julian Dunkerton, has taken over The Hollow Bottom pub, planning to reopen the venue in 2019.

The horse racing-themed pub in the Cotswolds closed without warning back in the summer of 2019, having been a popular venue for locals and horse racing fans. But now, it appears the Cotswold pub has been taken over by The Lucky Onion – the hospitality group behind No. 131, No. 38 The Park, The Tavern and The Wheatsheaf Inn.

According to job adverts, the group is looking to hire bar staff, waiting staff, chefs, kitchen porters, housekeepers and cleaners as part of the new opening.


Successful staff will enjoy a 50 per cent discount at The Lucky Onion’s properties, team events, continual training and monthly team incentives.

The adverts suggest that the pub will open ‘later this summer’.

Julian Dunkerton, The Lucky Onion’s owner and Superdry co-founder, said: ‘It is our ongoing commitment to restore historic buildings in the Cotswolds and Cheltenham. Racing is the heart of the local community as is The Hollow Bottom, we have gone above and beyond to ensure that locals and visitors are able to continue to celebrate both.’
