Marston’s Cumbrian inn changes hands

Colliers International has advised on the sale of the Bridge Inn at Santon Bridge in Eskdale from an asking price of £180,000.

Lesley Rhodes-Morrow and her husband John, who are retiring from the licensed trade, sold the residential pub to Len Brumby, who moves to Santon Bridge from Eccles in Salford.

Haydn Spedding, associate director of Colliers, said: "The Bridge Inn has always been a very successful and busy residential inn, having 16 en-suite letting bedrooms complimented by a restaurant, bar and large function room.

"This high turnover residential inn is held on lease from Marston's Brewery. The sale of the lease of The Bridge Inn follows a number of recent sales of similar, high turnover residential inns held on lease by Colliers International including the iconic Horse and Farrier and The Salutation, both of which are in the Cumbrian village of Threlkeld."
