Heartstone Inns has acquired its 15th pub after taking on The Two Brewers in Street, Somerset.

The site was acquired in an off-market deal through Christie & Co.

The Two Brewers had been under the ownership of Richard and Maggie Pearce for 23 years, they are now retiring from the sector completely.

Heartstone managing director James Birch said: “We are delighted to have added the charming and ideally located Two Brewers to the Heartstone Inns family of pubs.”

Nicholas Calfe, director at Christie & Co’s Bristol office, who handled the sale, said: “I was thrilled to be able to help Richard and Maggie move into retirement. The demand for well trading pubs in ideal settings is particularly high in the South West at the moment. The sale of The Two Brewers represents this demand. I look forward to seeing how the inn develops and progresses in the future.”
