Pub overview

The White Hart is a quirky, charming Pub with plenty to offer

Greene King are offering a fantastic opportunity to take hold of this Pub and develop it further into a great live sport venue. The site is a single bar operation with large screen TV’s, so its an ideal venue for customers to watch Football, Rugby or Cricket and create a great atmosphere. There is also a mezzanine area with forty food covers which offer excellent potential to improve upon the current mixture of Thai and traditional dishes. Externally, there is a secluded patio area which is popular during the warmer weather. The White Hart is located close to large residential areas, so there should be plenty of locals to capture the imagination of and temp into the Pub. We would potentially invest in this site, with the right operator.

One bar trading area, with mezzanine dining area. Externally there is a secluded patio area and a car park offering fifteen spaces
