The TV chef could hardly contain his excitement as he broke the news to fans that he was at the helm of yet another eatery.
Followers rushed to the comment section to share their support of his new venture, with one fan asking that he opens one in their town.
Sharing a selection of snaps of the cosy countryside haunt, James told his followers: “So excited about this!”
He also reposted The Lygon Arms’ announcement that he was going to be running their restaurant.
“We’re pleased to share the news that Tavern by James Martin is now open!
“Nestled on the High Street of the delightful Cotswolds village, Broadway, Tavern by James Martin is the perfect place to relax in the cosy ambience with a local cider or ale, and watch the world go by.”
The stately home which dates back to the 16th century will be James’ new home and passion project.
Fans rushed to the comment section, with one writing: “Congratulations can’t wait to visit,” while another added: “Very well done !! Best of luck @jamesmartinchef I’m sure it will be a huge success !!xx”
“You’ll have to stop opening new places especially within
45 mins of where we live , it’s ruining my waistline..” another joked.
James recently shared his thoughts on advice from medical professionals about cooking with less salt.
He recently published a cookbook, simply titled: Potato, which was dedicated to the vegetable.
While he was discussing a new sandwich recipe he said that the “world’s gone mad”.
When he was quizzed on his favourite crisps, he said that his was the Walkers’ Salt and Shake variety.
“Remember the ones with the blue salt pouch?” He told The Scotsman.
“Yeah, you certainly used to be able to get those from the tuck shop, with the sachet of salt, but now everyone’s being told to eat less b****y salt, the whole world’s gone mad”.
