Sessions House restaurant and bar fixtures and fittings go up for auction

The entire contents of the historic Sessions House in Peterborough will be put up for sale by auction on Thursday 12 September.

The auction consists of more than 500 lots of commercial restaurant and bar fixtures and fittings and a fully equipped commercial kitchen.

The owners of the Sessions House, who bought the former Mitchells & Butlers tavern in 2002, are hoping to capitalise on the future redevelopment of the former Peterborough District Hospital site.

The Sessions House is a listed building, dating back to 1842, which formed the front of Peterborough Prison. It closed as a prison after 36 years but remained a police headquarters until 1931 and was then a magistrates' court until the 1980s.

Simon Rose of Pro Auction, the company organising the sale, said: "By way of the auction, many of the people who have dined here in the past will get an opportunity to bid on items and buy a piece of its history."

The sale will take place online at with lots closing from 2pm. The equipment can be viewed on 11 September 2013 from 10am until 6pm and on the morning of sale from 10am.
