Bell

1 Station Road, Sandy, Bedfordshire, SG19 1AW

WET LED COMMUNITY PUB

The Bell at Sandy is a great opportunity to operate at the heart of the community and deliver fresh ideas to drive sales and footfall. The site does not currently offer sport on TV and this could be a great way to build upon the foundations already in place. The site is well known for offering great entertainment and this will need to continue to drive success. The Bell is also popular with local teams playing traditional games. The site is well presented internally and has a great garden which should be utilised further.

Location

Sandy is a market town and civil parish in Central Bedfordshire. It lies eight miles to the east of Bedford, eighteen miles to the south west of Cambridge and forty three miles north of Central London. The Bell is located close to the railway station and is close to many residential housing areas.

This site is potentially suitable for a first time operator, however any first timer must be able to demonstrate strong ideas around driving sales and footfall. The new operator will need to be at the heart of the community and be able to maximise the external space. If you would like further information, please contact our recruitment team.
