….while former Queens Arms is on the market (again).
THE FORMER Queen’s Arms pub at 23 Westow Hill is on the market freehold with vacant possession for £725,000 through Alder Grimes and Gooderham under it’s current – and possibly final – pub name of Pierre’s Bar. For some years the pub was known as the Black Sheep, closing its doors in October 2012 and re-opening in November 2012 as a short-lived tapas bar.
The agents say there is “potential for redevelopment / alternative uses subject to necessary consents.
A Punch Taverns spokesperson said: “It is always our preference that our pubs continue to trade as pubs. “However, we do review our estate regularly and may explore other options around the future of our less sustainable sites, or where they might better fulfil their potential for the local community under different ownership. “Following a review, a commercial decision was made to market Pierre’s Bar for sale.”
