Wright Brothers to sell Cornish pub The Ferryboat Inn

The Wright Brothers seafood restaurant group has put its Cornish pub The Ferryboat Inn up for sale.

Owners Ben Wright and Robin Hancock bought the 16th century building in 2009, and have since run a food–led pub serving fish fresh off the boat.

Now Christie & Co is seeking offers in the region of £295,000 for the leasehold interest with an annual rent of £60,000.

The Ferryboat overlooks Wright Brothers’ oyster farm and features a large indoor and outdoor trading space, a two bedroom detached house and three-bed staff apartment.

Stephen Champion, of Christie & Co, said: “This business could make an excellent addition to an existing pub or restaurant group, or alternatively could suit a hands-on owner-operator who wants to continue to develop the trade and benefit from the reduced costs.”

Wright Brothers currently runs four London restaurants in Soho, Borough Market, Spitalfields and South Kensington.

BigHospitality has contacted Wright Brothers for further comment.
