Polhill Arms

25 Wilden Road, Renhold, Bedford, Bedfordshire, MK41 0JP


The Polhill Arms is an established, award winning business, in the Village of Renhold, Bedfordshire. The pub is famous locally for serving a great pint of ale, as well as home cooked, quality pub food. As a result, the site has a strong reputation locally and any new operator will need to ensure this remains, whilst building upon the solid base already established. There is a really strong opportunity here, especially in current times to make use and maximise the extensive outdoor area. The site trades at approximately 80/20 in favour of drink and has won awards from CAMRA two years running. The pub attracts a large range of customers, from locals to those travelling from further afield.
