About Us

Berkeley Inns Limited is a fast-expanding pub restaurant group based in Derbyshire & Staffordshire, UK.

First established in November 2014 with the plan of acquiring and re-developing several unloved or closed but prominent pubs in the Midlands area. Our mission is to create viable, high-quality food led establishments while recapturing or maintaining the atmosphere of the local village pub.


In April 2015 Berkeley Inns Limited took over the well-known Three Horseshoes, now The Horseshoes in Long Lane Village, Derbyshire. Extensive refurbishments and extensions were carried out. The pub then reopened with the new restaurant in September 2015. We are grateful to all our customers for the fabulous reaction we have experienced. Alongside a slight re-brand, in May 2017 we carried out further improvements and developed a new and finer dining experience in a constant effort to improve quality…..

Early in November 2016 after over ten years of closure, we reopened the extended and much renovated Cock Inn at Mugginton, Derbyshire. The pub had, before 2006 been a renowned landmark pub.  We have been delighted with the public response to the project, with over 120 dining covers, the business is constantly busy and feedback amazing. Now serving up to 2000 freshly made meals per week, we are confident of a sustainable long term future for the gem of a pub once lost to the area.

We opened The Cow at Dalbury Lees in December 2017, after renovation and extension the property as a small boutique hotel featuring 12 individually designed, en-suite bedrooms, alongside a much-renovated bar and restaurant area. With the rooms in very high demand from tourists and business travellers, we are extremely pleased with the result.

In May 2019 we were delighted to reopen the renowned Meynell Ingram Arms in Hoar Cross Staffordshire.

This historic Staffordshire pub was closed for over five years and was acquired by Berkeley Inns Ltd in November 2018, in the six months that followed the property underwent a major but sympathetic refit and redesign. The traditional pub bar remains very much at its heart, complemented by modern and comfortable dining areas. Further, the much transformed Sam’s bar becomes an on-trend bar/restaurant showing major sporting events. The new offering provides casual, relaxed dining, with a high-quality and diverse menu throughout the various dining areas. From delicious pie & chips to fresh seafood and a vegan specific menu, there is something for all tastes and occasions. The public response has been fabulous and after such a fragmented year due to the national lockdowns, we look forward to a great Summer / Autumn 2021.


Following two years of planning, and a renovation project extended by the global pandemic, we are excited to accounce the Bluebell Inn at Kirk Langley, Derbyshire is now open! With a new state of the art kitchen and cellar, we will bring a serious quality edge to the offer at The Bluebell. The Bluebell offers great value in a super family friendly environment.
