The Pinewoods, an attractive community pub in the affluent Merseyside village of Formby has been placed on the market by specialist property adviser Christie + Co

Regularly frequented by Premiership footballers, the popular haunt has an excellent reputation for its shining hospitality and exquisite home-cooked dishes.

Ideally situated within a residential area close to the local shops, Formby golf club and Formby station, the property boasts a large lounge area with seating for approximately 100 people, and an outdoor seating area which can comfortably accommodate 50.

The handsome property also benefits from a spacious and beautifully appointed owner’s accommodation comprised of two double bedrooms, a third smaller bedroom, office, family bathroom and kitchen/diner. 

Mike Booth of Christie + Co’s Manchester office is handling the sale. He comments: “Since taking over the business in 2006, our clients have built on the pub’s reputation as a fine eatery and important asset of the community. They have also carried out extensive refurbishment works so the property is in excellent condition throughout.”

“Given the business’ location, quality and trading records, I anticipate a great deal of interest in The Pinewoods, which in my opinion represents an ideal opportunity for a husband-wife partnership or an experienced operator.”

Christie + Co is seeking offers of £120,000 for the leasehold interest in The Pinewoods.
