Peer pays £400,000 for village pub

A pub in Binfield Heath has been saved after being bought by the Phillimore Estate.

The Bottle and Glass in Harpsden Road, which is currently closed, was sold by Brakspear for more than £400,000.

Adrian Beales, the agent who handled the purchase for the estate, said: “I think Brakspear actually put it on the market over a year ago even when it was still letting it temporarily.

“I brought it to the attention of the estate, who initially didn’t jump at the chance. They reconsidered it and thought they would like to try to effectively help the community and try to save it as a pub.

“They are the biggest landowner in the area and just like to make a community-spirited approach to the way they do things and interact.”
