The Tadcaster Pub Company has taken its tally of outlets to 55 with the purchase of the Torn Tree near Ilkeston, Derbyshire.

The company, established by Jim Walsh's Commer Group three years ago and headed by James Crawfurd-Porter (right), had planned on having 55 pubs by the end of the year.

It now expects this figure to rise to 60 in the next two and a half months.

"Achieving year-end targets is always satisfactory, but to do so with three full months to spare represents a tremendous achievement," said Mr Crawfurd-Porter.

"Our investment in the Thorn Tree adds further depth to our estate and strengthens our property portfolio at the top end of the market," he added.

The Thorn Tree cost Tadcaster £700,000, the operator's most expensive acquisition to date.
