Philip Roberts, Commercial Property partner and Stewart Nicholson, solicitor, have recently acted on behalf of local businessman, Brett Lord, in relation to the significant purchase of the White Hart public house on High Street, West Mersea.

The popular pub will be revitalised and turned into a boutique hotel and restaurant, which is expected to help further boost the tourist trade Mersea Island receives each year.

Brett commented “This is an exciting project which once finished will unquestionably create a prominent establishment sympathetic with the island’s long history. Philip and Stewart quickly and efficiently helped us secure the property and contracts were exchanged just weeks after the sale was agreed. Thanks to their hard work I have been able to concentrate on this project without any delay.”
