Investment Opportunity

Bakers Arms

4 Hinton Road, Fulbourn, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, CB21 5DZ

Pub overview

The Bakers Arms is currently a Meet & Eat pub operated by Greene King’s managed pubs division. Having built its reputation in the area, we are now looking for an operator to take this pub forward as an independent business by building a more premium food offer.

The pub has been dedicated to serving great value food and drink all day, every day and customers appreciate the good value it represents. A bright, modern and fresh interior is designed to appeal to the local community it serves. The pub is deceptively large and also has an extensive garden and patio area that helps to boost trade in the summer so you will need to know what you are doing with food to make the most of this opportunity. Greene King will provide some capital investment to help with the rebranding and smooth transition of this business for the new tenant to enhance the current offer.

The trading space is large, with a modern extension to the rear that adds to the ability for this business to earn money. With a large garden and children’s play area, every inch of this business is dedicated to making money for you!
