“This is a great building and, as with all the sites we take on, we have a brilliant refurbishment planned,” said Authentic Alehouses director Allan Harper.
“We are confident that this unit can become one of our flagship Authentic Alehouse’s sites, we have some exciting things in store and look forward to celebrating the opening with the people of Southport.”
The deal was brokered by Ian Taylor of leisure property specialist Fleurets who said: “Situated directly opposite Southport Railway Station, the property consists of a large ground floor trading area and also includes a one bed flat.”
The acquisition of the Albert Hotel marks Burning Night Group’s second Southport site, joining The Sandgrounder.
Authentic Alehouses targets freehold venues, offering refurbishment before operating as principally non-tenanted public houses. Burning Night Group’s other sites include The Albert Hotel in Hull as well as The Countess Of Rosse on the western edge of Saltaire Retail Parade, west of Bradford.
