Pub overview

An excellent opportunity waits for an experienced Publican

The Liver has an established reputation for great value food and drink, in a comfortable, social environment.

Internally, the Pub is well laid out as a two room operation, comprising a small snug/games room and the larger main drinking and dining area. Externally the Pub has a large garden which could be transformed into a delightful space, extending dining covers through the warmer months and would help to make the Liver a true destination for the local community
