New owner for Cornish food-led freehouse

The Rifle Volunteer, a destination food-led freehouse on the Cornwall/Devon border, has been sold off an asking price of £1.1m.

The large, detached property is in St Ann's Chapel between Tavistock and Callington and overlooks Devon beauty spot the Tamar Valley.

The buyer, South West pub group the Wellington Pub Company, has leased the property to Coast and Country Inns.

The business is renowned for its good food and wide choice of cask-conditioned ales.

It comprises two bars with 26 seats for diners in the main bar, seating for 62 diners across three restaurants, six en-suite bedrooms, and a 100-capacity function room with a dance floor.

Property agent Bettesworth handled the sale on behalf of Frank and Lynda Hilldrup who have run the pub for the past 10 years.
