About the Pub

The Piper is a very established pub business with many reasons to visit including traditional pub food, cask ale, team games and live sport. The pub is well positioned on the main road from Kettering to Barton Seagrave and benefits from surroundings of residential dwellings as well as close proximity to Wicksteed Park. Internally the pub operates from two bar areas, the first is a lounge bar with 30 covers and is used for casual dining and a great space for locals to meet. The second bar is predominately used for sport with darts, a pool table and TVs for live sport. Due to its size, this area can be utilised for private functions to draw in additional revenue. The pub is traditional decorated and has been very well looked after by the outgoing publicans. There is a fully equipped trade kitchen located behind the bar which is capable of producing a traditional pub menu. The beer garden is located to the front of the pub with picnic benches for around 30 covers. A second seating area is located on a private grassed area directly opposite the pub which has the potential to seat a further 60. There is lots of potential to develop the external area to drive additional footfall. The private accommodation is well presented and comprises of three bedrooms, a lounge and kitchen. Stonegate Pub Partners are now seeking a community minded publican or couple, either new to the trade or experienced who can continue the food and entertainment offerings.
