A Honiley pub which was renamed after the famous First World War song that was written there is on the market.

The Tipperary Inn in Meer End Road, Honiley, has its place in history as the pub where the song was written by Harry Williams and Jack Judge.

Mr Williams’ parents were publicans who ran The Plough Inn, where the song was written. He purchased the pub for them with the royalties he received from the song and they, in turn, changed the pub’s name to The Tipperary Inn.

The leasehold is available for £85,000 through the Nottingham office of business agents Davey Co.

It is currently being run by Mike Malhan (pictured), who is relocating to another pub for family reasons.
