A collection of 13 pubs, operated by Stonegate on a leasehold basis, has been sold for £23m by Coffer Corporate Leisure to BlackRock.

Stonegate said it did not expect the sale to impact day-to-day operations or trading for the pubs involved.

Huge demand

Coffer Corporate Leisure managing director Mark Sheehan said the off-market sale of the portfolio was characteristic of the “huge demand” for pubs in the investment market.

“Institutional investors are attracted by the long leases, index-linked uplifts, strong underlying property value and liquidity of pub assets. Lack of stock remains our biggest issue,” Sheehan added.
