Paul Parker, associate director at Pugh, said: “The Time Piece is a popular pub and eatery in Dewsbury town centre and this is a great opportunity to invest in a sector that is seeing renaissance after the challenges of covid.

“Additionally, we understand that the pub’s two upper floors may have potential for residential development, subject to planning.”

Bidding on the Time Piece opens on September 21 and closes the following day.

Since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic Pugh has sold lots totalling over £70m at its auctions, held on the firm’s online platform.
