Pub overview

A multi income stream pub with great potential.

The Burnett Arms offers a warm, local feel. Whether you are after high quality food in our recently refurbished lounge/restaurant, private or corporate events, a cosy room for an overnight stay, or simply a drink in the dog friendly public bar offering a variety of drinks, live entertainment, juke box and pool table, the Burnett Arms welcomes new and loyal clientele alike.
With a good local following, this site provides a multi-faceted income stream for any new operator to take the business forward. Potentially in the future there could be the possibility of extending the number of letting rooms for further income streams.

Trading areas consist of a public bar equipped with a pool table and darts area, a recently refurbished lounge/restaurant, a conference or function room depending on the need and a beer garden with decking.
