London (PRWEB UK) 1 August 2013
The owners of the Sessions House in Thorpe Road who purchased the former Mitchell & Butlers Tavern in 2002, are hoping to capitalise on the future redevelopment of the former Peterborough District Hospital site.
The Sessions House is a listed building built in 1842 and was the visible front of Peterborough Prison, It closed as a prison only 36 years later but remained a police headquarters until 1931 then a magistrate court until the 1980s, when it first became a bar and later a bar & carvery restaurant.
The auction sale will include the furniture, carvery counters and bars, commercial catering equipment and general contents of the restaurant operation with a great selection of used catering equipment and restaurant items to suit every type of hospitality business.
The auction is targeted towards other bar and restaurant operators, but a lot of times when a restaurant closes, customers do not get an opportunity to say “goodbye” said Simon Rose Director of the auctioneering team leading the sale, “by way of the auction many of the people who dined there over the years get an opportunity to bid on items and buy a piece of its history,” he said.
