The Bay Horse Inn, Roughlee

The Bay Horse Inn

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

Update 23.06.2017

Villagers and well-wishers from around Pendle have raised a fantastic amount of money to save the Bay Horse from developers. A price has now been agreed with the current owners and solicitors have been instructed to arrange the sale, hopefully in the next couple of months.

A tenant has also been found, who is keen to open the pub as soon as possible. A number of villagers have been to his current restaurant and report that the food, staff and decor are excellent.

The tenant will refit the kitchen and make other alterations to the bar and dining room. Villagers now need to raise a little extra money for minor improvements so the building can be handed over in a sound state. An extra £25,000 should cover the work and donations of £1,000 or more would be welcome.

Once this sum is raised a halt will be called to investments to protect future dividends.

Update 06.04.2017

A village meeting was held to discuss the future of the Bay Horse and ask for expressions of interest in joining a group to buy it. Interested parties are being sought 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, we are 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.

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.
