Enterprise Inns sells off two Lincoln pubs

New owners: The Peter De Wint and Reindeer Hotel in Lincoln are being sold off by Enterprise Inns.

Enterprise Inns is selling two of its Lincoln pubs, the Peter De Wint and Reindeer Hotel.

The Peter De Wint pub has been sold to Greene King, making it the first Lincoln pub under the brewing group brand.

The pub is situated on Moorland Avenue and was sold by surveyors Hodgson Elkington.

Stephen Bradford, partner at Hodgson Elkington, said: “There was strong competition for the opportunity to acquire this pub, which is very well placed for serving the Moorland Avenue community and general catchment trade of the south western quarter of the city and North Hykeham.

“At a time when a lot of pubs are closing it is refreshing to be able to announce a fresh opening.”

Enterprise Inns are also selling the Reindeer Hotel on High Street, also via Hodgson Elkington LLP.

The property is being sold as a unit which could be either redeveloped as a restaurant and pub or an alternative use.

Bradford added: “Whilst marketing has only just commenced there is already a reasonable level of interest in the property and we remain confident of securing a sale in the near future.”

Enterprise Inns owns various public houses around the city, including the Horse and Groom, Ye Olde Crowne and Plough Boy.
