Enjoy the summer sunshine and relax at De Vere Tortworth Courts new Terrace Bar, set in the fabulous grounds of the stunning Victorian hotel.

The hotel has partnered with 6 Oclock Gin to launch a new outdoor al fresco dining experience and is looking forward to welcoming the local community to enjoy a gin or two in the sun, weather permitting.

The Terrace Bar is headed up by Sam Cotton and Alex Lazi and there are exciting events planned for this year, with the launch of 6 Oclock Afternoon Tea, Music on the Terrace, Masterclasses and, in June we will be celebrating the Queens Jubilee, with a host of events scheduled for this week.

Sam Cotton, Bars and Cellar Manager, has been with Tortworth Court since the age of 16, and six years on has become a senior manager. The idea for the new bar came from a brief conversation with his manager six months ago, and great teamwork from the hotels amazing Maintenance Team ensured the
bar was opened on time in April. Sams joined by his Floor Manager, Alex Lazi, who has worked at the hotel for the last five years and taking up his first
managerial role, bringing together a dream team for the summer.

Raphael Herzog, General Manager at De Vere Tortworth Court, said:
“With our exciting new-look Terrace and upgrading of 37 bedrooms, it really is a great time for Tortworth Court. We are looking forward to welcoming the
local community to the hotel as it has been a challenging few years, so we could not be happier at this moment to show off our great grounds and offerings in the hotel.

“We could not be more thankful for Chris Reynolds, our Account Manager for 6 Oclock Gin, to partner with us and to showcase their gin, which is made just five minutes down the road in Thornbury.”
