Pub overview

Located in the heart of the village this pub has recently been refurbished throughout with a substantial investment.

The Chequers Tree has separate dining and drinking areas, with several boothed seating areas, a log burning fire, both a front and rear garden area and an ample sized car park. This is a great opportunity for a food operator, to grow an already established pub and kitchen operation.

The successful applicant will also need to be able to mix with the local community and focus on local events, teams and charity events and really establish themselves at the heart of this community and drive wet sales.

There is a possible development opportunity in the garden areas to build help maximise the wet trade through the summer.

This pub is a real part of the community being one of the only places to eat and drink in the village

A newly refurbished bar & trade kitchen which serves a casual bar area with approx. 30 covers, a more formal dining room with approx. 60 covers and 2 external beer terraces which will cater for approx. another 30 covers.
