The Redcape Hotel Group (ASX: RDC) is best known for its chain of 32 local pubs, taverns and hotels that stretch the length of Queensland and New South Wales.

It's watering hole portfolio has now grown following the acquisition of the Pig 'N' Whistle Redbank Plains.

Today the Group announced that it has exchanged contracts to buy the Pig 'N' Whistle for $11.5 million before transaction costs.
