Pub overview

Located in the heart of the village this pub has recently been refurbished throughout with a substantial investment. *blended £108 off invoice discount available on draught beer and draught cider*

This is a great opportunity for an experienced food operator, who can demonstrate high volume food sales, 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.

* Please note that the large entry cost is a direct result from the recent refurbishment. Applicants will be considered who have a minimum of £40,000 as our assisted purchase scheme may be available for the right operator. *

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.
