New pubco buys Widmerpool freehouse

This food-led rural freehouse in the Nottinghamshire Wolds occupies grounds in excess of 1.25 acres that are just eight miles south-east of Nottingham city centre.

The village station closed in 1965 and within a year became the Schooner Inn, then a cocktail bar. It was sold to a brewery in 1970 and gained its current name in 1976.

The pub in Kinoulton Lane, which is popular for wedding receptions, can seat 200 customers in its open-plan restaurant, where the original station ticket office now forms part of the bar.

Facilities include two-bedroom owners' accommodation, a heated patio area, parking for 100 cars and a separate paddock.

An out-of-service railway line to the rear is used as a test track with a public viewing platform

The Nottingham office of Christie + Co sold the freehold off a guide price of £1.6m on behalf of the Miles family which has owned it for 15 years.
