Iconic Ellesmere Port pub up for auction

A historic Ellesmere Port pub is among more than 70 lots due to go under the hammer at Pugh’s North West property auction in Manchester on 15 October.

With a guide price of £150,000, the Station Hotel was built in the 1870s and in the early 1900s was said to have the longest bar in the country. The pub was a favourite drinking venue of hundreds of workers from the local iron works.

The Station Hotel will be auctioned with an adjoining car park, which produces an annual income of £7,000 and stands on a 0.4 acre site next to the town’s railway station.

Pugh managing director Paul Thompson said: “The Station Hotel is part of Ellesmere Port’s history and is a striking Victorian property in its own right. There is tremendous potential for the building’s redevelopment, subject to the necessary planning consents, and we are already seeing enquiries from prospective buyers.”

He added: “We find pub and hotel properties tend to generate large amounts of interest from potential buyers and sale by auction is one of the most rapid and effective ways to ensure that a former pub can take on a new and useful identity within a community.”
