A raft of pubs in Leeds, Bradford and Keighley have been lost by a Yorkshire pub group that went into liquidation

Victoria Road Pub Management Limited lost 18 pubs from its portfolio, including the Alma Inn in Shipley, the City Gent in Bradford and the New Inn in Leeds.

RSM Restructuring Advisory was charged with carrying out the liquidation process on 8 December 2016, after a petition to call time on the pub company was made by British Gas at an AGM in September 2016.

Back to their landlords

An RSM spokeswoman told The Morning Advertiser ​that all 18 pubs had been handed back to their respective landlords prior to their appointment and it was unknown to them whether they have remained open or not.

The High Court issued an order on 7 November after British Gas’s petition and RSM partner Mark Wilson was subsequently appointed liquidator by the secretary of state

Wilson said: “We are working with our professional advisors to review the current assets with a view to maximising realisations for creditors."
