New owner for lockside restaurant in Northamptonshire

Bruerne's Lock restaurant, which overlooks the Grand Junction Canal in the Northamptonshire village of Stoke Bruerne near Towcester, has changed hands.

It's a first-time restaurant buy for the new owner, Doug Palfreeman from St Albans.

The large, detached, red-brick Georgina property is located beside the top lock of a flight of seven working locks.

It has served in the past as a Post Office, a general store and a surgery. It now attracts tourists, families, walkers and canal enthusiasts.

The 80-seat restaurant is made up of a cellar bar, a first-floor dining room and alfresco dining for 24 guests. There is also three-bedroom accommodation for the owners.
