Last hurrah at the bar

December 2017

Last orders – this brass bell sold for £320.Last orders – this brass bell sold for £320.

Auctioneers Greenslade Taylor Hunt staged a unique clearance sale at the Burtle Inn, Catcott Road, Burtle, near Bridgwater, when the pub’s entire fixtures, fittings and contents went under the hammer.

In a frenetic two hour period over 200 lots from the kitchen sinks to the last order bells were put up for sale by auctioneer Simon Rayner.

He said: “As far as the vendor is concerned it’s a massive success because he didn't have to go the time and effort of removing everything and shifting it to auction - the auction came to him, and probably made more in situ than it would have done elsewhere.”

Salegoers packed the now defunct pub, to grab a piece of memorabilia. People traveled from Bristol and Glastonbury as well as former pub regulars keen to visit for one last time.

Appropriately the top lot of the day was a brass last orders bell. This was sold for £320, while another bell made £210.

Ninety-five per cent of the goods on offer found a home and the auction realised a healthy £5,000. Other prices of interest included £160 for an old anvil and £130 for a fridge.
