Historic Northumberland Inn Closes

Administration

| February 7th 2012

More News by Gillian Sayburn

The historic Lord Crewe Arms Hotel in Blanchland, traded by J&G Inns Limited which entered administration on 14 November 2011, was handed back to the landlord on Tuesday 31 January 2012.

The joint administrators Andrew Haslam and Gillian Sayburn of Begbies Traynor in Newcastle upon Tyne had traded the loss-making hotel for the last two months while an extensive marketing exercise was undertaken.

Mr Haslam commented: "Unfortunately, with the hotel continuing to lose money and no offers to continue to trade the business acceptable to the landlord, the only option was to close the hotel and hand the property back to the landlord.

“It is sad to see such a historic inn close its doors with the loss of a further eight jobs, but we are hopeful that the landlord may still find a way of securing a future for it.”

Set in a rural location, The Lord Crewe Arms was formerly part of the Abbey of Blanchland and is one of the oldest hostelries in the country, with the building dating back over 800 years.
