Holly Bush, Salt -Tenancy Available.


Well-Known Forumite
Been on the market since late June/early July, Admiral are offering a five year lease. Little interest in pubs at the moment, some have been on the market for 6 months or more.

"The Holly Bush is the second-oldest inn to be granted a licence (in the 12th Century)" Or to be slightly more accurate nearer 1620 (if indeed it was the second oldest pub to be awarded a licence)

One of those places I planned to visit but never got round to it, I heard the food was pretty good. I have been past it a couple of times lately, whoever takes it on will also have to spend a few quid on tidying it up (it does not look as good as in the glossy photos on the marketing website!).


wanna see my snake?
Just thinking aloud.

If Admiral are not able to find a mug to give them £65k in rent a year, they may be "forced" to sell it as residential and a nice building plot or two on the car park.
They may send in someone themselves first, to prove it isn't viable?

I went past on Thursday and there was scaffolding up with a fairly clear intention(!) to 'tent' the entire building - presumably there will be considerable attention (!) to the roof.

It looks like a fair amount of money is to be spent on the place.

Gather it has been acquire by the people who own the Mill at Worston. Being refurbished. Expect it to be moved upmarket with prices to match.

Ooops. Looks like they forgot to get planning permission for rethatching the roof. Had to put in a retrospective - should go through without a problem.
