A LANDMARK pub on the Herefordshire border is up for sale with a million-pound price tag.

The Salwey Arms at Wooferton, on the Herefordshire border with Shropshire, is on the market with agents Sidney Phillips for offers in the region of £1,100,000.

Set beside the A49, the "exquisite Georgian coaching inn" offers two interconnecting bars with space for 50, and three dining areas, with space for 62 covers, Sidney Phillips said.

It also has a function room and five high quality en-suite letting rooms.

Outside are extensive gardens and car parking, while two-bedroom owners' accommodation is also included in the sale.

The Salwey Arms, which is a grade II listed inn and has had a recent major refurbishment, was previously empty for several years until it was purchased by Hugo and Cilla Lywood in 2012.


The couple restored the property and created a successful business, however after two years of managing the inn they felt they were ready to sell to the right buyers.

They handed over the reins to brothers James and Matthew Jenneson, who moved from New Zealand and Scotland with their families to take ownership in 2015.

The pub now prides itself on using "outstanding" local produce, beers, and ciders, with a wide selection of cask ales and regular guest beers through the year.
