Downoak Limited

Development capital

Downoak Limited is a Pub EIS company incorporated to purchase high-quality freehold pubs in or near affluent market towns in South Central England. 

The company is managed by Oakman Inns, a multiple awarding-winning operator with deep sector and geographical market experience, a successful product and a clear growth strategy. 

Downoak made its first acquisition in September 2014 with an investment of £1.1 million to purchase, refurbish and relaunch a freehold ‘destination’ pub near Aylesbury, Hertfordshire that has successfully been relaunched as The Akeman Inn. 

Further acquisitions followed in 2015 with the purchase of The Akeman (Tring), the Blue Boar (Witney) and the Crown and Thistle (Abingdon) which Oakman Inns continue to successfully manage.

Downoak Limited launched a successful £2.6 million Crowd Bond in 2016 which refinanced existing debt in the business.

Peter Borg-Neal, Oakman Inns

We are delighted to be in business with Downing. The two organisations have shared values as well as shared objectives. There has been an open and collaborative approach to deal making and the execution has been prompt and professional.
