Bunbury Arms

Little Stanney Lane, Stoak, Chester, Cheshire, CH2 4HW

A great opportunity to further develop a well established historic country Inn, in the affluent and attractive Cheshire village of Stoak

The Bunbury Arms is an ideal opportunity for an experienced caterer looking to develop a high quality drinking and dining experience capable of driving destination as well as local custom. With energy and enthusiasm the right Publican could build substantially on the good existing business base. With a two room trading space, the pub is well defined to service the needs of both drinkers and diners. This site is very traditional in style with the added attraction of open fires for colder days and nights. The pub has a spacious catering kitchen, good car parking and outside garden space. The Bunbury Arms would be considered for further investment with the right publican prospect and a good business case proposal.
