Overton Grange taken off the market

Former Michelin-starred restaurant Overton Grange in Ludlow, Shropshire, has been taken off the market.

Owner Franck Choblet said he had decided to take the Grange, valued at £1.65m, off the market to use it as a base of operations after launching a number of new business ventures in the area.

Choblet said: "The Grange is now off the market and we intend to develop our portfolio instead."

Last month (13 October) Choblet reopened the Roebuck at Brimfield in Ludlow as a country-style dining pub after striking a keen deal for a lease of the closed site with owner Wolverhampton & Dudley Breweries.

Choblet is also working with pub giant Punch Taverns to develop a group of branded food-led pubs in and around the surrounding region.

The as-yet unnamed chain will aim to offer good-quality food in an informal setting.

The first site, the Salway Arms, which is on the A49 between Hereford and Shrewsbury, is set for a £400,000 renovation.
