Pub overview

This well respected pub business has a strong local trade that has been built up over the last few years but has the potential for further growth and development.

The Gascoigne is set in idyllic countryside and is the firm favourite pub in this village which is serviced by many amenities. The busy catchment area brings plenty of custom to enable you to fully develop the business and provide the local community with real ales and good home cooked food. The pub was decorated to a high standard following an investment 2 years ago and the trade area consists of one central bar with open planned drinking and dining area that has segmented areas for diners and social drinking. The private accommodation also makes this a suitable business opportunity for families.

The main central bar serves the open plan trading style with dining and drinking areas segmented to maximise on the ability to cater for the many locals who visit this establishment. There is a small snug area for private occasions with large banquet tables and chairs for large parties to be accommodated too. Open fire and real ales finish of the feel of this truly superb example of a local community food and beer public house. There is a large car park and large decked external drinking area.
