Following the purchase, Mr Dalton said he now plans to add six bedrooms and a micro brewery.

Christie & Co acted on behalf of Mr Dalton to secure the deal.

Keith Stringer, associate director of Christie & Co, said: “We are delighted to have been able to help Peter acquire the freehold of a business in which he has but so much time and effort.

“We are confident that the pub will continue to go from strength to strength as a result of his stewardship and his new plans for the business.”

Mr Dalton’s first venue was the acclaimed Manto Bar located on Manchester’s Canal Street.
