A PUB which featured in a football hooligan documentary has been sold.

The former Foresters Arms in Burnley was put on the market for £140,000 in April on the online property website Rightmove.

The Todmorden Road establishment has been removed from Rightmove and a spokesman from estate agents, Savills, confirmed the pub had been sold.

The pub became notorious in 2006 when previous owners allowed it to be featured on Danny Dyer’s Real Football Factories documentary, which aired on the former tv channel, Bravo.

In one episode, the TV hard man was seen taking part in a meeting between members of the infamous Burnley Suicide Squad.

The pub is also mentioned in gang leader Andrew Porter’s famous Suicide Squad book.

However, the pub’s image was turned around and, in 2014, its most recent landlady Maureen Cardwell, and her husband Ian, spent £40,000 on a new revamp in a bid to attract new customers.

The overhaul included new signage, repainting and decorating throughout the Admiral Taverns-owned pub.

Speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph in 2014, Mrs Cardwell said the pub boasted a trouble-free and family friendly atmosphere.

Away fans were not allowed in the pub on match days.

The pub includes a lounge area, a games area with space for a pool table and fixed seating.

It also includes an entertainment area and a flat on the first floor.

The Savills spokesman could not confirm who the pub was sold too or the final sale figure.

This comes as another pub with the same name in Pleasant Street, Haslingden, is also up for sale. The Pleasant Street establishment has a guide price of £70,000.

The website is open for offers however, if an offer is not found, the pub will go to auction on Tuesday, September 3.

The auction will open its doors at 10.30am, but bidding will start at noon at the AJ Bell Stadium in Manchester. A Rightmove spokesman said the properly “may represent a development opportunity subject to necessary consents.”
