“ This is a pub with an opportunity to grow the food trade, alongside its already robust wet volumes. Internally the site is in good condition and extremely quirky. Canal side moorings will benefit the summer trade and add to the attraction of the pub. There is also a large car park with three outside seating areas.The pub had a small internal refurbishment 12 months ago. ”
