The Buffalo.

Former Gillingham pub The Buffalo, which last served as an Italian restaurant, is to be auctioned at the beginning of next month with a guide price of £260,000 to £280,000.

The Buffalo, in Lydfords Lane, standing on more than a third of an acre, is among 136 lots listed across southern England by Clive Emson Auctioneers in its seventh of eight auctions for the year.

Mike Marchant, a senior auction appraiser with the firm, said: ‘This attractive freehold public house in North Dorset has most recently been in use as an Italian restaurant.

‘The traditional pub area to the front has been added to with a pizza oven and seating area to the rear. On the first floor a two-bedroom manager’s flat is in reasonable order.

‘Located in a predominantly residential area, the property sits within a substantial plot of over one third of an acre. It is considered there may be scope for future development of the land to the rear, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.’

The latest auction ends on 1 November, with live bidding starting 48 hours before.

In the auction firm’s previous auction, The Cock & Bottle Inn at East Morden, near Wareham in the Purbeck, Dorset, sold for £402,000, which was £62,000 more than the freehold property’s guide price.

The joint auctioneers are Savills.
