The Bay Horse Inn

We’re sorry to report that the Bay Horse Inn is currently closed following a kitchen fire.

Update 10.03.2017

The future of the Bay Horse Inn was discussed at the Roughlee Parish Council meeting on 6th March. As noted in the minutes, it is understood that the owners MAY be seeking planning permission for residential use. The Parish Council therefore agreed to submit an immediate application to secure the pub as an Asset of Community Value in order not to lose it as an important asset for the village. We will hear the outcome of this application within the next few weeks.

It was also agreed that a working party be set up to explore opportunities to retain the pub. This working group is led by Paul Dawson, and one of its initial tasks is to understand the local appetite for creating a consortium to purchase the Bay Horse Inn.

Paul is therefore asking interested parties to register their interest in the opportunity to invest in a private limited company operating as an investment company, with the sole purpose of purchasing the Bay Horse Inn and surrounding land. At this stage, as part of an expression of interest, he is asking for a rough indication of the amount you would be prepared to invest subject to approving an investment plan.

If you wish to register your interest, please contact Paul Dawson on 07810 698694 or by email on [email protected] All matters in this regard will be treated as strictly confidential.
