Experienced hospitality operators Philip and Karen Grattan have bought the Twyford Inn, which lies at the outskirts of the Devon town of Tiverton.
The Grattans have clocked up a combined 19 years in the hospitality trade and Philip has worked in London for Harvey Nichols, the Elysium Night Club below the Café Royal and chef Jean-Christophe Novelli, as well as Nigel Mansell's Woodbury Park hotel in Devon.
The end-of-terrace inn comprises a main bar with two seat areas to accommodate 45 guests, as well as a sports area with pool table and gaming machines.
It also provides six-bedroom owners' accommodation, along with a 60-seat paved trade area outside and a two-storey storage barn.
Stonesmith of Exeter sold the Enterprise Inns lease off a guide price of £105,000.
