Stour, Blandford St Mary, Dorset, DT11 9LH
Located within walking distance of the Hall & Woodhouse Brewery in Blandford St Mary, the Stour Inn is brimming with charm and character and enjoys a true cross section of visitors to the pub. The pub is currently categorised as a 'Quality Village Local' as it is traditional inside and out, and services the needs of the local villages with a strong food and drink offer.
The Stour Inn is situated in the tiny village of Blandford St Mary connected by a bridge over the river Stour to the Georgian market town of Blandford Forum. Blandford Forum is the home of the Hall & Woodhouse Brewery and is approximately 30 minutes drive from the South Coast and the resorts of Poole and Bournemouth. The site benefits from a busy nearby campsite, a large private school opposite, close proximity to the brewery and a recently completed sizeable housing development in Blandford St Mary.
The Stour is a traditional English pub with plenty of character. It is a one bar L-shaped layout with extended seating area behind. The decor is an eclectic mix of wood and traditional floor finishes complete with two working fire-places. This area leads to the ‘hidden jewel’ of the pub being the beautifully landscaped garden which is on various levels and stretches some 30 metres to the back boundary of the property.
This is a very attractive and popular area in the summer and significantly increases the pubs seating capacity when in use. This is a good opportunity to take on a business that has been built up to an extremely high standard over the years with a loyal following.
There are no letting rooms at this property.
