Freehold offers are currently being invited for The Junction Inn in St Denys.
The Grade II listed pub is at the end of Priory Road, opposite the Community Centre, and has seen various changes of management over recent years.
It’s understood it’s still open and it’s hoped it will continue trading until the property is sold, which is apparently likely to be next spring.
It’s listed as a “Substantial freehold public house in a residential suburb of Southampton” with three-bedroom manager’s accommodation and an “extensive beer garden” with “spacious ground floor trading areas”.
A spokesperson for Greene King told bitternepark.info: “We have made the difficult decision to sell The Junction Inn in Southampton. Selling a pub is never an easy decision, but it allows us to further invest in our estate. We’re working with [estate agents] Savills [link to property listing] and hope to come to an agreed sale very soon. We would like to thank the local community for their support for the pub over the years.”
As we reported in 2016, The Junction was listed with the council as an ‘asset of community value’ (ACV) under the Localism Act, offering the community the opportunity to bid on it should it have gone on the market.
However the pub’s listing has expired.
There are currently no other city pubs registered with Southampton City Council as ACVs, although the Bitterne Park Hotel and The Bittern in Thornhill Park Road were previously listed.
