The nearby road networks are excellent and the A15, A16 and A17 all set amidst a series of other 'A' roads provide access throughout this beautiful county.


This lovely 2 storey village inn is of brick construction and sits beneath a pitched, slate roof on the main road running through the village.

We are advised that the business trades with the benefit of the Premises Licence (not seen) which permits the sale of alcohol during the hours of:
Sun - Thurs 11am to midnight
Fri - Sat 11am to 1am

Current opening hours are

Monday Closed
Tues-Thurs 5pm to close
Fri - Sat 11am/2pm 5pm/close
Sunday 12noon to 4pm

NB. Important. Prospective purchasers wishing to continue to operate the public house should ensure that they gain the APLH Qualification in readiness for their intended operation of the Public House.


The property and business are being offered for sale freehold (although we have not had sight of the title deeds). We are advised that mains services are connected (no services tested) and the business uses Calor for cooking and heating. Business rates payable are advised as being £NIL per annum.


The current owners purchased the freehold property in September 2013 and immediately set to the task of extending and comprehensively refurbishing the premises from top to bottom. The business is currently operated by the owners assisted by circa 4-part time/casual members of staff and is currently trading on reduced hours through their own lifestyle choice. Our vendor clients are now looking to sell the freehold on in order to be able to take life at a more leisurely pace. Currently offering locally sourced home cooked food and drinks, occasional live entertainment and race nights to a loyal, repeat and desirable clientele the inn sits at the centre of the local community. In our opinion this business provides many untapped opportunities. We are advised that accounts declare takings of £121,142 (incl. vat) to end 31st March 2017 achieved on a trade split of 60% Food and 40% Wet sales (on minimal trading hours). New owners could continue to operate the business using the same formula or may wish to take the business to the next level. This could be achieved by taking advantage of the obvious opportunity to extend the opening hours whilst introducing a regular quiz, entertainment and themed food events (for example) to create a thriving community local feel.

Limited accounting information will be made available to interested parties after viewing.
