Holden's Brewery buys second Ironbridge pub

West Midlands-based Holden's Brewery has bought the Meadow Inn and Lodge in the World Heritage site of Ironbridge in Telford, Shropshire.

The acquisition brings the group's estate to 23 pubs and it joins Ye Olde Robin Hood which Holden's bought last year in the Ironbridge area.

Ironbridge, which is set in a wooded valley in the Shropshire countryside, was the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.

The Meadow Inn and Lodge is in Buildwas Road opposite Ironbridge power station and its beer garden stretches to the banks of the River Severn.

The Inn is a large detached property comprising a public bar, two restaurant areas that can seat 75 diners in total, and a function room to accommodate up to 60 people.

The adjacent lodge provides five en-suite bedrooms.

The asking price for both freehold properties was £850,000 , with the inn advertised separately at around £595,000.

Holden's, which is based in Woodsetton, Dudley, is one of just 33 independent breweries left in the UK and is owned by the third and fourth generations of the Holden family.

The Birmingham office of Christie + Co handled the sale on behalf of John Faulkner.
