18th century Northumberland inn on the market through Christie & Co

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has been instructed to market the Boatside Inn, a pub and restaurant with letting rooms in the village of Warden, Northumberland. The inn is available on a free of tie leasehold agreement for an asking price of £180,000.


Located within the picturesque Tyne Valley, at the meeting point of the North and South Tyne, the inn is an ideal destination for those wanting to explore the Northumberland trails, and the area’s many historical sites including Hadrian’s Wall.

Dating back to 1782, the Boatside Inn has a rich history as an alehouse and has become a popular destination for locals, families and tourists over the years. Beautifully presented throughout, the inn features a lounge, bar area, and beer garden where guests can enjoy beverages, and a restaurant which boasts an exciting new menu. The inn includes three en-suite letting rooms and two self-catering “North Tyne” and “South Tyne” cottages. There is also a two-bed flat above the inn, which can be utilised as owner's or manager's accommodation.

The current owner, Matt Cawood is selling due to relocating. He comments, “The Boatside Inn is uniquely located on a popular riverside walk from Hexham, meaning even daytime winter footfall is very healthy. However, this inn really comes alive when the spring and summer arrives, with people streaming in all day long and it’s an amazing place to work. Luckily, we have a strong, loyal and professional core team in place, which means a new owner will benefit from an experienced group of hospitality professionals from day one and with summer fast approaching, I really feel the Boatside Inn is the most desirable hospitality business in the Tyne Valley currently available on the market.”

Marslie McGregor, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, comments, “This is an excellent opportunity to acquire an established and well-performing turnkey business with multiple income streams, in a picturesque tourist location. The Boatside Inn has established a strong reputation with both its loyal customer base and tourists to the area. This is an ideal acquisition for a lifestyle buyer who is possibly new to the hospitality trade or a multi operator looking to expand their portfolio.”
