The Independent Pub Co is the new owner of Ye Hostelrie hotel in the village of Goodrich, Ross-on-Wye, in Herefordshire.
The property, believed to date back to 1625, was first recorded in 1728 as the Crown & Anchor. It served as a parish workhouse between 1819 and 1832.
Its church-like appearance can be traced back to 1845 when the then-owner Sir Samuel Meyrick renovated the premises to its current gothic style and renamed it the Meyrick Arms. It became the Hostelrie in 1851.
The hotel offers seven letting bedrooms, including one four-poster room and one family room.
Its restaurant can cater for up to 75 people for formal dining, or up to 120 for informal buffets.
There is also a two-bedroom owners' house and a one-bedroom staff flat.
The Cirencester office of Colliers Robert Barry sold the hotel off a guide price of £875,000.
