Pub overview

This is a fantastic opportunity to take over the running of a very successful business which has been built up over 8 years with great licensees who have moved on for personnel development.

Ideal for a first time operator with an easy to run single bar operation and easy access to the catering kitchen and segmented trade areas which see dinning and drinking work in conjunction with each other. The pub benefits from a town centre location but over looks the local church giving it a rural village feel. The beer garden makes this a popular summer pub for both real ale drinkers and lunch time dinners and the private accommodation is very suitable for family living.

Central bar service station which has a large back bar to aid in merchandising and selling opportunities. There is a large restaurant with 30 covers and an ability to use this for private parties, a snug which has circa 10 co, and a lounge area for mixed drinking and dinning that can hold upto 30 people. The main bar area has vertical drinking and there is a conservatory to allow drinking and casual dinning. There is a large car park with over 20 spaces and a large beer garden accessed from the conservatory and car park.

Volume notes


The pub lies on the very busy A57 the main arterial road from the M1 to the A1M, it is just off the town centre so acts as a feeder bar for the weekend circuit trade without the hassle of the town centre business. A rural feel being opposite the church and on the outskirts of town make this for a very popular venue for the many local residents.

“ This is a superb established business which is very popular with locals for both beer and home cooked food. It would be great for a first time operator who can come along and continue the great work here. The pub lies very close to the town centre opposite the church which gives a local village feel rather than a town centre bar. It is a single bar operation which makes it easy to run with the kitchen feeding directly into the trade area. There are segmented areas for designated eating and drinking which allow for a great mix of occasions.The main dining area could be used to accommodate private parties too. ”
