Joule's Brewery, based in Market Drayton, said 'after careful consideration', it was offering The Crown, Silverdale, near Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire for sale.

A statement from Joule's Brewery read: "While it has been an extremely difficult decision for us, we believe this presents a unique opportunity for a new chapter in the pub’s storied history.

"Situated on the corner of Brook Street and the local 'Silverdale Park', this welcoming old mining village pub has been a cherished part of the community, offering a lively, friendly bar atmosphere and a welcoming lounge.
