Black Horse

, Gozzards Ford, Abingdon, Oxfordshire, OX13 6JH

A CHANCE TO DEVELOP A TRUE DESTINATION SITE

The Black Horse is located in a beautiful rural destination, benefiting from a large garden and large trading space. The site has a loyal customer base and provides a solid base to build the business further This is a great opportunity for a food focused commercial orientated operator to introduce a menu focused on local provenance and use their creativity and passion to create a desirable offer which will draw guests from the local area and further afield. The site has all the makings of becoming a true destination business. The pub currently trades at a 60/40 split in favour of drink, although we see the future more focused on food. The pub offers plenty of outdoor space with a large garden and car park, meaning coming out of COVID times, you will be able to utilise this space to offer a variety of events.
