EVER fancied yourself as a publican? Now may be your chance to purchase a pub for an extremely low price.

Auction House Cumbria is advertising the former King’s Arms pub in Hensingham for the extremely low price of £30,000.

Previously a popular local in Whitehaven, the once-popular local will go on the market in September after being left empty for a number of years.

The pub on Main Street also has a three-bedroom living space above the venue.

On their website Auction House Cumbria described it as “in basic order but offering great development potential.

“It is suitable for a variety of uses subject to planning.

“Interested parties should make their own inquiries to the planning department at Copeland Borough Council.”

The property will go up for online live auction on September 2 with interested bidders being told to join at 12pm.

As well as the upstairs rooms, the lot comes with a small inner rear back garden, as well as traditional men’s and women’s toilets.

Additional charges of £1,200 will be added to the auction price with the energy efficiency rating of the building still to be confirmed.

The pub is described by the company as offering “great development potential” and would be a steal for any would-be publican who wishes to get involved in the trade, or seasoned pub owners who might be looking for a fresh new challenge.

Although it is not yet known how many people may bid in the auction, the listing has attracted a lot of attention on social media.

The pub previoulsy hosted eating challenges for causes such as Help for Heroes, even having its own “wall of fame” back in 2013 to honour brave locals who wished to take on its epic burger feet.

Anyone who may be interested in purchasing the pub is asked to contact Auction House Cumbria on 01228 738027 or visit their website at www.auctionhousecumbria.co.uk to arrange a viewing or find out more information.
