Pub overview

An investment opportunity is available for a new operator who can embrace this village pub as the drinking, sports and locals hub of the village.

The Waggon & Horses is a wet led, community pub that benefits from its involvement with team activities. Pool, darts, petanque and football are an integral part of the business. It is the only wet led pub in the village with two other premium quality food and drink outlets in the village. This makes the Waggon & Horses the place for Sky Sports & BT Sports, live entertainment and a good social drinking environment.

Machine income is free of tie, however, there is the option of a rent reduction for a shared income arrangement.

There is one open plan area with two distinct trading areas. The bar is to the front of the premises which is where the music/disco is usually situated and where the access to the toilets is. The cellar is accessed at the rear of the bar and is underneath the bar area. To the rear is the pool table, domestic kitchen and access to the rear garden and smoking solution. There is also a rear store room with a separate exit/entrance into a small private yard. To the side of the building is a small car park for approximately 8 cars, beyond this is a lawned garden area with picnic style benches and a petanque pitch.

“ This is a great opportunity for someone new to the trade, or for an experienced community locals operator. The Waggon & Horses benefits from a low cost base and is the only community drinking pub in the village. It would suit someone who wants to get involved with local activities, charity events and sports teams. There will be a small investment to the trade area and accommodation to raise standards; we will be looking for input from the new operator to finalise the plans and make the most of the money spent. ”
