Somerset pub-restaurant goes to Dorset brewers

Dorset-based brewer Hall & Woodhouse has snapped up the Greyhound Inn, an established pub and restaurant with rooms in the Somerset village of Staple Fitzpaine.

The creeper-clad, 16th century former hunting lodge is in the Blackdown Hills, two miles south of Taunton.

It retains a number of period features such as open fires, flagstone floors, old timbers and stone walls and trade is split equally between food and drink.

Along with a public bar, it comprises two dining areas to seat 80, a conference/function room to accommodate 70 guests, four en-suite letting bedrooms, staff accommodation, and a two- to three-bedroom owners' cottage.

Outside, there are beer gardens to the front and side and car parking bays.

The new lessees are David and Marina Wright, who move from the Buffalo Inn at Gillingham in Dorset.

The Exeter office of Christie + Co sold the freehold of an asking price of £895,000 on behalf of Lucy and Ivor Evans.
