Previously operated under management and trading under the Authentic Alehouses Limited brand, the five freehold properties are broadly located within a ‘corridor’ along the M62, ranging from Driffield, East Yorkshire, to Barnoldswick, Lancashire.

Four of the properties, The Albert Hotel, Ponty Tavern, Wakey Tavern and the Countess of Rosse are substantial, traditional public houses, prominently located in busy town-centre or suburban locations. The remaining pub, The Fountain Inn is a smaller site located in a rural location.  

The properties are equipped for use as a public house with letting rooms and/or dining rooms. A mixture of managers accommodation and letting rooms are also featured on the sites.

The sites have been operated by creditors since Authentic Alehouses Limited entered administration in 2019.

Neil Morgan, Senior Director in Christie & Co’s Corporate Hospitality team is leading the sale, with support from Christie & Co’s regional network of agents.

Neil comments, “We’re delighted to bring the portfolio to market on behalf of administrators. The properties have been well maintained and we anticipate strong interest in these particular assets that are priced at a level which is likely to attract numerous prospective buyers.”

Offers are invited on a group or individual basis.
