PUBS across the north - including three in West Yorkshire - have been put on the market. 

The Sun Hotel, on Kirkgate in Shipley, Beeston's Whistle Stop, and the Red Lion in Wakefield are all part of the former Wear Inns pub portfolio.

Following the appointment of joint administrators Ryan Grant and Howard Smith, of Interpath Advisory, to the Milton Portfolio Op Co 3 Ltd in November last year, joint agents have launched a widespread marketing campaign of the 25-pub portfolio.

The pubs, located across the North East and Yorkshire, have remained open following the appointment.

The agents have reported a "significant level of interest from national, regional and individual operators".

Peter Constantine, managing director of Avison Young’s Leisure team, added: “We are delighted to be handling this high-profile sale on behalf of the administrators.

"We expect to receive multiple offers from a variety of bidders.

"We welcome all offers, particularly for the group as a whole, but we will also consider offers for smaller packages or individual sites.”

Alex Sweetman, director at Watling, added: “We look forward to progressing our campaign over the coming weeks
