Pub overview

Move in – understand your customers – then help us develop the perfect business

This beautiful Grade 2 listed pub dates back to 1505 and has recently re-established itself as part of the local social scene. Now it’s ready to be a transformed into a high performing retail space. We’re looking for an experienced operator to take on the pub now, which means you’ll have the opportunity to understand the local market and work with us as we carry out the refurbishment. We’re already in discussions with the authorities to agree final planning applications and are expecting to have these approved later in the year. Proposals include increasing the number of dining covers to drive more sales from affluent residents and to provide a better environment so that the Queen’s Head becomes the ‘must visit’ premium destination in the area. Financial details shown in these property details are for the pub in its refurbished condition and part of our business planning will also include agreeing costs for the business before the works have been completed.

The pub is traditional in style and sympathetic to its listed status. There is currently capacity for 56 diners and an outside space that can increase turnover in the summer months. Our proposals are to increase the number of dining covers to 78 and refit the interior with a more contemporary take on a heritage pub – using stylish period furniture and clean, simple lines offset by a ‘Farrow & Ball’ style colour palette. We will also redecorate the outside of the building in keeping with its traditional style and put in new premium signage. We’ll create a drive-to destination business that really appeals to people in your catchment area.
