Future of Berrow pub in doubt after it fails to sell at second auction

The future of a pub in Berrow continues to hang in the balance after it failed to attract any bidders at a second auction.

The Berrow Inn was orginally put up for auction in July with a guide price of £350,000-£380,000 but it failed to sell and its price was cut to £320,000 for a second auction on October 2nd.

"Unfortunately, the pub failed to sell at the second auction and did not attract any interest," Nick Webber from Westcoast Properties told "A question mark hangs over its future."

While the property is being marketed as a pub with an alcohol license, the sale board outside states it has "significant development potential subject to planning permission."

Locals, including Keith Verrier, are concerned that the building could be knocked down and replaced with flats.

He recently told "We don't want to be without our village pub. Our fear is that the property is going to be sold off and turned into a block of flats or houses. We don't want to have to travel to Burnham or Brean to use a pub - we want our local pub to be the social hub of the village."
