The Ostrich Inn in Colnbrook is up for sale - for a cool £1,350,000.

The world famous pub and restaurant dates back to 1106 and is regarded as the third oldest inn in England.

The Grade II listed inn in Colnbrook High Street has remained an important staging post since the middle ages and welcomed many royal guests.

According to local folklore it was the venue for a string of murders committed by the infamous landlord Mr Jarman in the 17th century.

He and his wife would fill the rich customers with food and wine before they retired for the night in one of the rooms with a magic four-poster bed.

The bed would tip backwards when they were asleep and drop them into a pot of boiling water, killing them instantly.

The building underwent an extensive refurbishment in 2015 when it was acquired by the current owner who updated the main trading areas and added eleven en-suite letting rooms.

The freehold is being offered with a guide price of £1,350,000.

Simon Chaplin, senior director of pubs and restaurants at Christie & Co is handling the sale and is warning against frivolous would-be purchasers.

He said: “The successful inn is a prominent landmark within Colnbrook and would be an excellent opportunity for a range of buyers looking to buy a piece of 'Ye Olde England' but not as a vanity piece, as The Ostrich is a fully functioning and profitable business with many successful years ahead of it.”
