Staffordshire-based pub operator, Sunset Taverns, has taken its estate to eight, with the acquisition of the Huntsman Inn, Stoke-on-Trent, from Admiral Taverns. The Huntsman Inn is situated near the junction of Westport Road and Hull Road, in a mixed retail/commercial area on the edge of the market town of Burslem. The property comprises a 70-cover bar, 40-cover first-floor function room and two-bedroom owner’s accommodation. Sunset Taverns, which is understood to be owned by overseas investors, acquired the freehold of the Huntsman Inn for an undisclosed off an asking price of £110,000. Last February, it acquired the freehold of the Duke William pub in Burslem. Gavin Wright of Christie + Co, who handled the sale on behalf of Admiral, said: "We are pleased to have sold the Huntsman Inn to Sunset Taverns, as they plan to refurbish the property throughout and keep it as a public house."
