The owners of Ferrari's Country House hotel in Thornley have bought the Coppull Moor restaurant in the Lancashire village of Coppull.
The large, Victorian building occupies a prominent position in a quarter-acre site alongside the A49 Preston Road.
Facilities include three separate dining rooms to seat 50 guests, two lounges with seating for 34, and double-bedroom first-floor accommodation for the owners.
Outside, the site has a large private garden and a 20-bay car park.
New owners Ginio and Susan Ferrari run the 22-bedroom Ferrari hotel, restaurant and wedding venue near Longridge in the Ribble Valley. Their new acquisition will be run by their daughter and son-in-law as a fine dining venue.
The Manchester office of Christie + Co sold the freehold off a guide price of £485,000 on behalf of chef-proprietor Barry John Rea, who has run the restaurant since 1991.
