About the Pub

The Travellers Rest is a substantial detached pub located just outside the pretty village of Hythe, on the outskirts of Southampton and the New Forest. Benefitting from a wonderful rural setting there is huge scope for a new publican to develop the food and drinks range to attract new custom and make this a pub worth travelling to. The spacious internal trade areas accommodate around 40 covers. Due to the rooms being slightly separate from each other, the potential lies to attract a variety of clientele including those looking to dine with family or those looking for a casual drink with friend and a game of pool. This would be an ideal opportunity for a publican who possesses a passion for cask ales and who can utilise their previous knowledge to really establish this business. There is scope to develop the external area to increase cover capacity to over 100 covers comfortably with a vision to maximise this space with joint investment.

Regional Manager's Thoughts

The Travellers Rest benefits from a lovely rural setting and attracts local residents and visitors to the locality. Business here is driven by both wet and dry trade, with quality and good value meals being served at lunchtimes and during the evening. We are looking for a publican who will build on the current business with an emphasis on a home cooked menu and with quality ales. Live music, pub games and social events are all very popular here and a regular schedule would be very well received. The site also has scope to expand the current external area, increasing cover capacity and making the most of the garden land available to which is overlooking a panoramic fantastic view of the neighbouring countryside.
