A Scarborough pub is still for sale after failing to sell at auction for the second time.

The Tennyson Arms, on Dean Road, had a guide price of £200,000 - reduced from £240,000 when it was originally listed - but the reserve price was not met.

It is now up for sale again - the third time the pub has been listed for auction this year.

Nick Ward, Auction Specialist for property firm iamsold, said the pub had attracted a good level of interest but it is difficult to sell pubs at the moment because of the pandemic.

“The feedback we’re getting is that pubs are not at the forefront of people’s minds given the current environment,” he said.

The pub is now up for auction again, with the same reserve price of £200,000.

The auction is due to close on September 17.

According to its listing on property website Right Move, the pub is a “mock Tudor-style freehold ” which has two bars and comes with a six-bedroom maisonette above.

There is a front bar with fixed perimeter seating as well as a back bar with access to a cellar.

The maisonette is accessed from a separate door from Dean Road and leads to two floors of spacious accommodation including a lounge, kitchen, six bedrooms, study, bathroom and shower room.

Three of the bedrooms are en-suite and there is also a roof terrace.

The pub is up for sale with CPH Estate Agents and Chartered Surveyors.
