Ferrensby inn sold for £850,000

The General Tarleton inn in the village of Ferrensby has been sold for an asking price of £850,000.

The coaching inn, which was previously owned by John and Claire Topham for the past 24 years, was sold to the preferred buyer, Sarah Morris.

The site features 14 refurbished, luxury en-suite bedrooms, a bar and restaurant, a dining atrium, a cocktail lounge and a private hire and function room.

Much of the building’s traditional features, which date back to the late 18th Century, have been retained throughout, including stone walls, oak beams and a traditional fireplace which is showcased in the cocktail bar and function room.

Morris said: “The pub is currently undergoing a comprehensive refurbishment and is set to open late Spring – lockdown and local restrictions pending – so regulars can still expect the same traditional charm, cosy rooms, welcoming hospitality, outstanding food and fine wines together with some exciting new changes.”

Previous owners, John and Claire Topham, commented: “In recent times however, we have focussed more and more on another project and felt that the time was right to step aside. We wish the new owner, Sarah and her team all the best and we are confident she will be a huge success.”

Mark Worley, director in Christie & Co’s hospitality team handled the sale.
