Grade II Listed Pub Near Belsize Park Sold By DCL

May 21, 2018

Leisure property specialists Davis Coffer Lyons has – on behalf of Gresham Collective – completed the sale of the Grade II listed public house The Load of Hay Tavern in Belsize Park.

The attractive pub is held on a Free of Tie lease at a rent of £88,000 pax and is located in a prominent location close to Chalk Farm Tube Station.  The ground floor trading areas have seating for up to 80 people with a bar servery, disabled WC and kitchen.  The basement has a beer cellar, ladies & gents WCs, office, walk in fridge and a former microbrewery. Externally, there is a decked outside seating area for a further 45 people.

Will Clayton, owner of Gresham Collective, has sold the pub to concentrate on the roll out of their Cork & Bottle Wine Bar concept which now has two sites in Leicester Square and Paddington.

Keith Goodwin, an Associate Director in Davis Coffer Lyons’ pubs team said:  “The Load Of Hay Tavern is a lovely property, however, it no longer matched Will’s longer term plans for his business.  We are delighted to have completed the sale and wish Will every success with his other ventures.”

The Load of Hay Tavern was acquired by The Collective MJMK Partnership who also own the S11 Bar in Pop Brixton which opened in May 2015.
