A 17th century freehouse in Wiltshire's Kennet Valley has been sold to a local couple from nearby Marlborough.
Experienced operators Wendy Spriles and Richard Odling have snapped up the Crown and Anchor pub in the picturesque village of Ramsbury, which is the source of most of its trade.
Ramsbury is located in an Area of Outstanding Beauty in the North Wessex Downs and is midway between Marlborough and Hungerford.
It comprises a lounge bar, a snug, a public bar with darts area, a family room with pool table, and two-bedroom owners' accommodation.
Outside it has a number of outbuildings, a covered sun terrace, a beer garden, and a car park.
The Bristol office Christie + Co sold the freehold off a guide price of £485,000 on behalf of previous owner Edward Keen.
