The Steam Wagon Inn, at Mount Pleasant Road, is currently being run by HGC Holdings Limited which runs the Red Barn on the other side of town.

A spokesman for the company said they are currently running it on a temporary basis for Punch Taverns but may decide to put in a bid.

The HGC Holdings spokesperson said the previous operator resigned, hence why the business is now on the market.

He said: "The pub has had its problems over the years but it is now a really nice place for the local people to come and join.

"There is zero trouble here and we are a massive sports pub. We also do food and have just changed the menu."
