Property specialist oversees pub deal

A Birmingham-based licensed property specialist has managed the sale of a Shropshire pub.

James A Baker oversaw the deal for The Seven Stars pub in Beckbury, near Shifnal, which will now become part of the independent Craft & Jam brand.

The Seven Stars, located on Madeley Road, closed to customers at the end of March but is now set for a new lease of life with Shropshire-based Craft & Jam planning to undertake a programme of renovation work, which will include creating an open plan trading space and incorporating an external bar to serve food outside.

Amy Potter, from James A Baker, said: “We are pleased to secure the sale of the property on behalf of our client to an experienced local operator who will be investing in the site and securing its long term future.

“The renovation work at the Seven Stars is expected to take around three months with the aim of re-opening the venue sometime in either late July or early August.

“Once open, it will trade as a mix between an American smoke house and a British pie house.”

Craft & Jam already operates The Malthouse and The Swan, both in Ironbridge, The Last Inn, in Newport, and The Bull, located in Rodington between Shrewsbury and Telford.
