Punch spends £1m+ on Poole bar-restaurant

Punch Taverns has bought the freehold on the Penn Café Bar and Restaurant in Poole for in excess of £1m.

The business in Penn Hill Avenue comprises a 175-seat bar and a 50-seat first-floor restaurant.

It is now being run by local operators Mick Callaghan and Philip Watkins of Funnybone, who have taken out a new 15-year lease with Punch.

The Goadsby hotel and leisure division acted on behalf of the sellers, Primetower Property, which has run the business for the past seven years.
