On Thursday 11th April 1907, the Market Distillery, consisting of public bar, snug, saloon bar, lounge bar and wine cellars, with dwelling house, were offered for sale by auction. It was stated that the takings between 1896 and 1903 ranged from £3381 to £4113 per annum. Tenants fixtures and fittings were valued at £104 4s 6d and the trade utensils and stock to be taken at valuation.
Some years previously the vendor had been offered £14,000 for the property.
The first offer was £3,000 and at £4,700 the sale was withdrawn and a lease of 7 or 14 years was offered instead. The bids rose from a rent of £150 per annum to £190, when it was again withdrawn.
