The property is traditional in style and comprises of two rooms, one main bar at the front or the pub and a rear bar, both of which have their own serveries and have a comfortable, cosy feel with up to 30 covers.

This space could also be versatile as a small function room, used for private hire with potential to develop this further.

To the rear of the building is a patio garden with benches, ideal for extra trade during the warmer months. The private accommodation consists of three-bedrooms and a lounge, ideal for a family and in good decorative order.

Regional Manager's Thoughts

This is the perfect first-time pub for a new starter or experienced publican seeking a comfortable community house. There are plenty of opportunities to develop the existing custom through increased use of the rear bar and function room or by reintroducing a food offering to complement the wet trade.
