A FINE VILLAGE PUB, OFFERING FABULOUS FOOD AND A STRONG REPUTATION.
The French Horn, in the idyllic rural Bedfordshire village of Steppingley is a delightful pub, bristling with charm and character. The pub is food focused and trades at a 60/40 split, with a reputation for destination dining. We are now looking for an experienced food operator who can build upon the current offer and adapt the offer in line with trends and customer demands. The pub is well located on a busy cross road and is close to various tourist destinations such as Woburn. The pub offers a relaxed environment, great service and a warm welcome.
Steppingley is a rural village and civil parish in Bedfordshire. It is located close to the nearby towns of Ampthill, Flitwick and Woburn, Bedfordshire. Much of the surrounding land is part of either Beckerings Park, or the Woburn Estate. The Duke of Bedford influence can be seen in the characteristic style of the numerous workers cottages throughout the village. Steppingley is a sought after village to live in, with a strong and active sense of community and schools nearby. The French Horn is located on the north western edge of the village, with residential housing close by, as well as the village green/Cricket pitch/park
