Railway carriage and pub for sale
Published at 11:10, Thursday, 05 May 2011
A UNIQUE pub which offers fine dining in a vintage railway carriage is up for sale.
The Hound Inn, at Arlecdon, is on the market for £750,000 with Meridian Business Sales, after its landlords decided to move on because of “family commitments”.
Its restaurant is housed in a 1954 railway carriage, installed in its grounds in 2000.
The 37-ton coach, named Orchid, played a part in British political history when it was used to carry the body of Lord Mountbatten – killed by an IRA bomb – from Waterloo to Romsey in 1979 as a royal train.
The 42-seater open coach was designed for first class passengers when it was built in Doncaster in 1955.
It now offers dining for 30 people, complete with its own bar.
