“ Fantastic opportunity to take over this pub which is in the only pub in a rapidly expanding village. Investment is planned in the near future, to reflect the growth of this village and its surrounding areas. Hundreds of new houses are to be built over the next year and this is great opportunity to redefine this traditional pub into the hub of this new community village. With the dining area, garden space and patio area, the site is in a great position to move to the next level with the development planned. We're looking for highly customer focused operators, who have a passion for great food, service and building teams. Someone who can really integrate themselves into a key role in this growing community and cater to commuters and villagers alike. ”
