The Keys freehouse, hotel and restaurant in Roxwell, Essex, has a new owner who plans to convert the property into an Indian restaurant.
Mr B Choudhury, whose wife runs a restaurant in Chelmsford just four miles to the west of The Keys, has bought the remaining 27 years of the leasehold for more than the £125,000 guide price.
Once known as the Cross Keys, the business has a prominent location in the hamlet of Boyton Cross on the A1060 Chelmsford to Bishops Stortford road.
The two-storey detached building has recently been extended to include eight letting bedrooms, a new trade kitchen and a separate, one-bedroom owners' flat.
Other facilities include a lounge bar, a 40-seat restaurant, a beer garden and a patio.
The Ipswich office Christie + Co acted for the former lessee, Simon Edwards.
