Wright Brothers to sell Cornish pub The Ferryboat Inn

Related tags: Wright brothers, 16th century

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.
