Pub overview

This is a great opportunity to secure a pub with a long history in the thriving central area of Oxford. We would be happy with the necessary approvals sought to invest into the Pub with the right operator and with the right business plan.

This is a small pub with one of the only late licenses in an excellent part of Oxford: it has a long established reputation for locally sourced entertainment, ranging from poetry readings to open mike acts. It has a small trading area served by a single island bar which serves the the two distinct but separate areas of the Pub.

There is a small but unique single trade area which is split into two areas served by a small island bar.
