The pub was up for auction with Dedman Gray and sold prior to the auction last month for £400,000.

Maldon and Burnham Standard:

The owners said they have big plans for the pub and will be converting the upper floors into short term holiday lets/ bed and breakfast rooms.

The detached Grade II listed property has had new signs installed representing the new name.
