Barclay House expansion


Looe hotel and restaurant Barclay House has expanded its portfolio with the freehold acquisition of Ye Olde Plough House Inn in Duloe.

The popular restaurant with public house facilities will trade as ‘The Plough by Barclay House’ and will be run by executive chef Benjamin Palmer and the management of Graham and Gill Brooks, that led to Barclay House being awarded Restaurant of the Year 2010 by Taste of the West.

Barclay House has also agreed to provide The Plough as a temporary location for the Duloe post office following its closure.

The company’s owner Malcolm Brooks commented: “I am absolutely delighted with this purchase as it fits in so well with our strategy of impeccable quality within this locality.”

The Plough will be the 15th freehold property in the Looe district to be purchased since the company’s incorporation in 2006.
