About the Pub

The Highway Man is a large roadside pub situated in the village of Dobwalls, south east Cornwall. The pub is very popular with locals and there is huge potential to develop this pub into a well-established destination food pub. There are two key internal trading areas which include a bar and a restaurant. The bar opens out on to the front terrace and boasts traditional features including a mixture of beams, stone, wood and panelling. The space is split into two sections and can seat between 40 and 50 covers. The restaurant is nicely decorated with a feature fireplace and can accommodate 20 to 30 covers. As this area is adjacent to the bar area it could be divided to provide facilities for private parties. Both of the trading areas, and the toilets, are to be decorated prior to the pub being let. Additional facilities include a fully equipped commercial kitchen with an extraction system. To the front of the pub is a terrace with a covered area that acts as a smoking solution. To the side is a large beer garden which could seat 50 covers. The garden would benefit from the addition of children's play equipment and would also be great for BBQs. The car park can hold 30 vehicles and there is a public car park next door if this is full. The private accommodation comprises of four bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, and lounge. Stonegate Pub Partners are now seeking a new starter to the trade or an established food operator who can maximise the facilities of this great pub. This is plenty of scope to develop this business for great food, driving trade from further afield.
