Redcomb Pubs ramps up expansion with £1.25m acquisition

Hot on the heels of its purchase of the Old Shades in London's Whitehall, pub operator Redcomb has acquired the Old Manor in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire, for £1.25m.

Dating back to the 13th century and featuring Tudor timber beams and many original features, the Old Manor is one of the oldest surviving buildings in the town, once forming part of the Manor House of Wyllyotts.

The spacious pub features a 170-cover dining room with vaulted ceilings and access to a galleried dining area, expansive bar and private function area for hire. Serving a selection of traditional pub classics, the Old Manor also has an extensive range of real ales.

Redcomb Pubs, owned by Dan Shotton and Mark Draper, has a portfolio of 14 additional pubs across London and the home counties, including a number with rooms such as the Manor Arms int Streatham, the Theodore Bullfrog in Charing Cross and the Old Shades, which it acquired for £1.1m in October.

Shotton, managing director of Redcomb Pubs, said: "The Old Manor comes to the Redcomb Pub estate with great heritage and a great reputation, making it a fabulous, well-researched addition to our growing portfolio.

Our continued expansion strategy has seen two new acquisitions in as many months, adding strength to both our London and home county representation within the UK pub sector.

"Well established, quality sites such as the Old Manor come along too infrequently and we are delighted to be bringing this well-loved site into the Redcomb fold. We look forward to working with the current team at the pub, meeting the locals and providing them with the top notch food, drink and hospitality that Redcomb Pubs has become so renowned for."
