The crowdfund, which launched last month, closed earlier today (September 2) with a total of £115,126 raised from 522 backers.

His original goal of raising £100,000 has been surpassed earlier this week​, with the Eggletons saying at the time that the goal was to exceed the stretch goal before the crowdfunding closed.

The Pony Chew Valley will be located on the site of Josh and Holly’s popular The Pony and Trap in Chew Magna, which closed permanently last year after being launched by the couple in 2006, and will include a produce-focused restaurant, an event venue, a kitchen garden and cooking school.

Talk to BigHospitalityLast year​, Josh described the new project as very different from anything he had done before, with aspects such as organizing volunteering opportunities, people involved in the projects receiving lunch and a box of vegetables in return, as part of its operations.

“We are no longer going to be a country pub. I’m not even sure we will become a restaurant,” he said.

“The Pony Chew Valley will be about food education. I specialize in food, so I’m going to look at food inequality. This is what The Pony Chew Valley will examine.

He added that he would welcome people who would not normally have access to high-end restaurants through a volunteer program.

“We will work with our many partners in Bristol to bring people here. The countryside is not accessible for some people in town. I want them to come here and see how things are grown and how we prepare them.

Last month it was also announced that Eggleton’s Pony Bistro restaurant in the Bristol suburb of Bedminster will close at the end of the yearto allow the siblings to focus on the upcoming relaunch of their flagship Chew Valley product.
