Noel Moffitt, sneior director of corporate pubs and restaurants at Christie and Co, who is managing the sales process, said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for individuals and multiple operators to acquire established successful public houses across England and Wales.

"The pub sector has been very resilient over the last few years and has adapted well to the challenges and despite interest in the sector there is a lack of properties on the market.

"This portfolio offers new entrants and existing operators a wonderful opportunity to acquire investments or operate their own businesses.”

"This enables us to focus on our strategic objectives and maximise returns from our core estate.”
