Wadworth puts 24 pubs on the market

Brewery and pub operator, Wadworth has 24 pubs on the market through Christie & Co.

The sale of the pubs was decided by the Wiltshire-based company following a review of its estate. CEO Chris Welham explained, 'Every year we undertake a review of our pub estate to look at opportunities to transfer pubs between our Managed and Tenanted divisions.

'One of the outputs of this review was to consider the sale of a small package of pubs from our Tenanted business.

'As a result of this, we have identified 24 sites in total that we believe are not suitable for us to retain long term. We have therefore decided to take the opportunity to offer these pubs to the market now.

'Having informed all the affected Business Partners who operate these pubs, we have engaged Christie and Co to market this package of pubs on our behalf.'

One of the pubs included in the package is the Haw Bridge Inn (pictured), which is situated in Tirley, Gloucester.
