Whitbread has sold a former Brewers Fayre in Nottinghamshire to pub operator Greene King, as it concentrates on co-located Premier Inn and pub/restaurant locations.

Acting jointly on behalf of Whitbread, Christie & Co and Gerald Eve have sold the freehold of the Ashley Hotel in Worksop, Nottinghamshire, for an undisclosed sum.

Located one mile from Worksop town centre, the Ashley Hotel comprises a 32-cover public bar, a circa 140-cover dining room. Greene King has since refurbished the property and reopened it under its Hungry Horse brand.

Simon Hobbs, head of asset management at Whitbread PLC, said: “This sale reflects Whitbread’s long-term strategy to operate pub restaurants with a Premier Inn alongside where we can capture the benefits of both brands. The Ashley Hotel did not support our criteria for Premier Inn and as a consequence we decided to dispose of the asset.”
