Oak Taverns buys Oxfordshire village inn

Family-owned Oxfordshire pub operator Oak Taverns has bought the White Horse Inn in the village of Forest Inn.

The White Horse Inn was the last in a package of freehold pubs to be sold by Birmingham-based New Wood Inns through property agent Christie + Co.

It's located in Wheatley Road, just off the main A40 road to the east of Oxford, within a conservation area.

The semi-detached stone building comprises a character lounge and public bars, two-bedroom owners' accommodation, a trade garden and a car park.

Oak Taverns, formed in 1991 by former Whitbread employee Ian Collinson, currently has 15 managed pubs, three tenancies and a brewery, mostly in East Anglia.

The Milton Keynes office of Christie + Co sold the freehold off an asking price of £300,000.
