Greene King leaseholder buys Cambridgeshire inn

The leasehold on the Three Horseshoes in the Cambridgeshire village of Abbots Ripton has been sold to a former Greene King lessee.

Ronan McLister has sold his lease on the Fort St George (a riverside pub on Midsummer Common in Cambridge) to take on Three Horseshoes near Huntingdon.

The thatched and colour-washed Grade II-listed country inn dates back to the 17th century and is owned by the estate of Lord de Ramsey of Abbots Ripton Hall.

The food-led destination and function venue is listed in the Good Beer Guide 2008.

It offers six en-suite letting bedrooms (three in the main building and three within two detached outbuildings), a large lounge bar, two snugs, a 70-seat restaurant and owners' accommodation.

Outside facilities include a lawned beer garden, patio and car park.

The Ipswich office of Christie + Co arranged the sale on behalf of chef-proprietor Ian Campbell.
