A Derry pub owned by the Granny Annies group – on the market for £1.5m – is about to be sold off, Ulster Business can reveal.
It’s understood the bar in the Diamond is now under offer, after being put on sale earlier this year. It was formerly part of the JD Wetherspoon group. Granny Annies also operates venues in Limavady, Enniskillen and Belfast.
A spokesman for parent company W&R Holdings previously said that “the directors have decided to list the building as ‘for sale/to let’ in order to test the market place”.
“This comes on the back of various parties showing an interest in the building and also a recent article whereby the JD Wetherspoon chain has indicated a desire to return to the city in the future,” he said.
“Furthermore with an uplift in the housing market locally in the North West and the directors having historically a foothold in this sector, they are keen to pursue other investment and development opportunities.”
Meanwhile, the Corner Bar in Limavady is up for sale, for offers around £600,000. Both properties are being sold by EO’C Estate Agents.
