Lancashire-based pub and restaurant group Provincial Hotels & Inns has entered administration, with five sites at risk of closure.

Patrick Lannagan and Julien Irving of Mazars LLP have been appointed joint administrators of the company as of 21 June 2021.

Provincial Hotels & Inns, which was incorporated in 2013, owns and trades from four public houses, as well as a hotel and brasserie in north Lancashire.

They include The County Lodge & Brasserie in Carnforth;  The Manor Inn in Lancaster; The Blue Anchor in Bolton-le-Sands; The Windmill Tavern in Preston; and Yorkshire House Hotel, also in Lancaster.

Trading will continue while the administrators assess the financial position of the businesses. 

"Given the popularity of the pubs and hotel, the Joint Administrators are confident of achieving a positive outcome for the sites,” says Lannagan.  

"We will be writing to all creditors over the next few days but would encourage anyone with an interest in taking over the public houses and hotel/brasserie to make contact with Avison Young.

“The teams at each of the pubs and the hotel are very appreciative of the support of our customers at this difficult time. That continued support will give us the best chance of securing a successful outcome and preserving jobs.”
