Famous Liverpool FC pub brought to market for £3.7m

The venue has served the local community under various ownership since the 1870s. It was Originally owned by the founder of Liverpool Football Club John Houlding

The Sandon Complex, a Liverpool institution famed as the birthplace of both Everton and Liverpool Football Club has been brought to market with an asking price of £3.7m.

The venue has served the local community under various ownership since the 1870s. It was Originally owned by the founder of Liverpool Football Club John Houlding.

In 2017, the business was acquired by local businesswoman Kate Stewart and underwent an extensive refurbishment, which transformed the complex inside and out.

Home to five refurbished function rooms and a revamped pub that runs a programme of events and entertainment for the local community, the business has a capacity for over 4,500 people spanning across the entire complex.

It also has large outdoor screens erected for finals, live music and a wide range of food and drinks on offer all day ahead of kick-off.

Following the match, guests are also able to stay the night at the recently opened on-site hotel which comprises 123 beds across 20 rooms, with planning permissions secured for an additional six rooms.

Stewart said: “Since purchasing The Sandon in 2017, I have given it the TLC that it needed, regularly investing in the hospitality suites and creating a 115-bed hotel. The Sandon is an institution for football fans.

“I will miss The Sandon terribly, but I feel this is the right time to close this chapter and spend more time with my family whilst they are still so young.”

Tom O’Malley, associate director in Christie and Co’s hospitality team, who is handling the sale, added: “With its historical associations and contracts with Liverpool FC, along with its proximity to Anfield Stadium, this multi-faceted business is an exciting and rare opportunity.

“We are currently seeing increased demand for wet-led public houses, so we expect the sale to attract attention from a wide variety of buyers.”
