The Yard is now up for auction but has not arrived in the catalogue as yet. This was bought in 2005 for £320,000 with a 35 year lease agreement of £32,000 a year.

£320000 with a 35 year lease of £32000 per year???!! Bloody hell that's £1,120,000 in rent and £1,440,000 with the lease premium! And then there's council tax, fuel and water rates, not to mention staff wages and wear and tear costs.No wonder the pubs are shutting fast. Poor sods probably only sold a few pints and a packet of crisps. Very few pubs would take £32,000 a year in the poorer areas now.

Probably a Brewery being far too greedy, I've been on the receiving end of them myself, they are so short-sighted and don't care who they stomp on.

Yes, the old breweries used to look after their tenants in a mutually beneficial way. The Pub Companys just want to sell the lease, let people go bust and sell it again. It's a disgrace.

Although the last two applications were successful.
