A PUB be­lieved to be the old­est in Ash­bourne has been put up for sale. The Horns, in Vic­to­ria Square, dates from the 1600s and has been put on the mar­ket with agents James A Baker.

An ask­ing price has not been made pub­lic and of­fers are in­vited.

The Horns be­gan as a small ale house with an open court­yard to the rear but later ex­panded into a neigh­bour­ing butcher’s – and the orig­i­nal walk-in meat stor­age cup­board can still be seen in one of the rooms.

The agent says the pub’s main focus is serv­ing drinks but it also has a restau­rant area that can ac­com­mo­date 28 din­ers.

The Horns of­fers 1,335 sq ft of space across three storeys. On the ground floor it has a cosy lounge/bar plus the restau­rant area.

The mid-ter­raced prop­erty also has a ‘dumb waiter’ lead­ing from the ground to the first floor.

The first floor com­prises a large, mod­ern, com­mer­cial kitchen and prepa­ra­tion area, stor­age space and of­fice.

Pri­vate ac­com­mo­da­tion is spread across the sec­ond floor with three dou­ble bed­rooms, a pri­vate kitchen, a shower room and a sep­a­rate bath­room with toi­let.

In the par­tic­u­lars, the agent says: “The Horns Inn is lo­cated in the heart of the mar­ket town of Ash­bourne, fronting the pic­turesque Vic­to­ria Square. The pub is pre­dom­i­nantly sur­rounded by re­tail and other li­censed premises.

“It of­fers con­sid­er­able scope for lo­cal and re­gional pub­lic house operators and restau­ra­teurs.

“The prop­erty has po­ten­tial for a num­ber of uses, sub­ject to the grant­ing of rel­e­vant per­mis­sions and is likely to be of in­ter­est to lo­cal in­vestors, de­vel­op­ers and builders.”
