Three AA-rosette-holder Andy Sheridan is launching a pub in Gloucestershire this spring.

Andy, who runs the award-winning restaurant 8 in Birmingham City Centre, will transform The Red Lion in Newent.

The chef and his business partner Sam Morgan will also bring a second branch of Black & Green to Newent, having successfully launched in Barnt Green near Birmingham, in 2022.

Black & Green is listed by Michelin, AA, Harden’s, and The Good Food Guide.

Commenting on the new venture Andy said: “We’ve got the right team on board and so the time is right to launch a second offering like that of Black & Green. It’ll be beside a beautiful, country pub, deep in the heart of rural Gloucestershire. People will be able to eat and drink well at the pub, with a simple menu, or, if they want to enjoy something a little special, they can pop next door to the aptly named Severn & Wye, which will be adjacent to the pub.”

Andy added: “We are expanding considerably in 2023 and I can’t wait to bring our food to Gloucestershire.”

Opening dates for the The Red Lion in Newent, and the adjacent Severn & Wye will be announced shortly
