The White Hart, a 14th-century inn on the banks of the River Arun in West Sussex, changed hands within 24 hours of being put on the market.
Located beside the medieval Stopham Bridge, the South Downs inn is a destination venue for walkers and visitors to the area. It is just off the A283 one mile west of Pulborough, one of the larger villages of the Arun Valley.
It offers a snug, lounge, public bar and restaurant that can seat 40 customers in total. There is also three-bedroom owners' accommodation, a private garden, a trade garden to seat 100, and a car park.
New owner Graeme Cooper lives near Windsor.
The Winchester office of Christie + Co sold the leasehold (which has five years remaining) off an asking price of £118,000, with annual rent of £27,000, on behalf of Sarah Darling.
