The 4,200 sq ft former pub has parking for 50 vehicles, and is situated on a 1.25 acre site close to Hooton railway station and a mile from junction 5 of the M53 motorway.

Pugh managing director Paul Thompson said: “Properties such as the Hooton Hotel offer great potential either for strategic redevelopment schemes and it would be tremendous to see the venue become an asset to the community once again.
