A PUB in Brightlingsea is coming up for auction.

The vacant Freemasons Arms, in Sydney Street, has a freehold guide price of £200,000 to £210,000. Paul Bridgeman, auctioneer, said: “We have been advised by the sellers the bar equipment and furnishings will be left at the property and so it will be possible to reopen in a very short space of time. There may also be potential for change of use or development opportunities, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.”

The auction is being staged at Chelmsford City Racecourse, Great Leighs, CM3 1PZ, on Tuesday, June 14, at 11am.
