Hat & Rabbit

4 Hinton Road, Fulbourn, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, CB21 5DZ

A VILLAGE FAMILY DESTINATION PUB

The Hat & Rabbit in Fulbourn is a great opportunity for an experienced hospitality professional to re-establish a great traditional food offer and embed the pub at the heart of the community. Events and entertainment should be delivered consistently and they should embrace the community and appeal to all. The pub predominately attracts families but the pub can also cater for those looking for a social or quick drink with friends. There a couple of other pubs in the village and social clubs but they serve different offers so there is space for the Hat & Rabbit to thrive in the family pub space.

Location

The pub is in the village of Fulbourn between the City of Cambridge and Town of Newmarket. It is nestled amongst some lovely trees and there are plenty of new houses being built, offering the opportunity to build upon the established trade. There is a varied demographic but it is the family element that this pub leans towards.

I am looking for partners who want to embed themselves in the community and build a pub that not only satisfies the growing population in the village, but brings in new customers due to the warm welcome, good food and drinks along with events and entertainment.
