Pub overview

An established business, with investment planned. We require a new operator to take the White Horse Inn to the next level

We are investing in building three new en suite letting rooms in a new build block in the car park, taking the total letting rooms to five.
The pub is situated in the prosperous village of Barton on the outskirts of Cambridge. The site benefits from a prominent road side position on the busy Cambridge to Bedford road and is easily visible from the road in both directions. The pub is popular with local business people and residents and also with walkers. Local attractions include Wimpole Hall and Farm Centre and Cambridge Science and Business Parks which ensures the letting rooms to the side of the pub are in demand throughout the year.

There are two distinct trading areas, a snug bar area and a restaurant with a conservatory, each with its own server. There are also two double en-suite letting rooms to the side, a patio at the front of the pub, a large grassed garden area and a large car park.
