Location
The Pwll Gwyn is located on the A541 Mold to Denbigh road, approximately 30 minutes drivetime for a number of tourist locations including Llandudno and the North Wales coast, Chester, Cheshire Oaks discount retail park and the Snowdonia National Park. The A55 is approximately 5km (3 miles) to the north and gives access to Chester and beyond that The Wirrall and Liverpool. From Chester, the M56 is accessible and links with the M6.

Description
The property comprises a former 18th Century Coaching Inn which has long had a reputation as a popular pub and restaurant. The building sits in a prominent position next to the A541 and benefits from a converted stable block, gardens to the side and rear and a large car par. Many
original features have been retained including stone mullioned windows, oak beams and stone fireplaces. In all the accommodation extends to approximately 554.9 sq m (5,973 sq ft) on a site area of 0.85 acres (0.34 ha).

The ground floor accommodation opens into a characterful bar area with oak beams and an inglenook fireplace. From here there is a doorway through to a lounge which has a Minster style stone fireplace, a serving area off and access through to a large conservatory dining room
extension, which opens out onto the garden. In all, the restaurant accommodation provides approximately 70 covers. To the rear is a beer cellar, male and female toilets and a store room.

To the side of the main building there is a large commercial kitchen with food grade surfaces and flooring and a variety of store rooms. The kitchen has a comprehensive extraction unit and is offered with a variety of equipment including an LPG cooker with oven, a double sink unit and wash basin and a variety of stainless steel work surfaces.

The first floor accommodation is accessed via the bar area but separate access could be created. There are four bedrooms on the first floor, together with a large living area, a kitchen and two bathrooms. The accommodation benefits from original stone fireplaces in one of the bedrooms and the lounge. A second floor provides a further bedroom and an attic storage room.

The converted stable block is separately accessed from the car park and provides five en-suite, double letting rooms, two on the ground floor (one of which has an additional living space) and three on the first floor. There are the remains of a separate stone outbuilding to the side of the property and this has scope to provide further accommodation subject to statutory consents.

The Business
The current owners initially purchased the Pwll Gwyn as a base from which to run their artisan food production business, as the property has consent for the small-scale artisan production of sauces and condiments including bottling and distribution. In addition, they ran supper club nights and private dinner parties based around the development and promotion of their business.

They have also offered the five letting rooms, all of which have en-suite bathrooms, televisions and fridges in the rooms, on an ad hoc basis to fit around their business. One of the rooms has a separate sitting area with potential for kitchenette. Now that some of their artisan business has moved off-site, the property offers huge potential for developing a pub/ restaurant with letting rooms. The picturesque surroundings and location in a popular tourist area make this a unique opportunity for buyers.

The current owner has retained the premises licence for selling alcohol so purchasers will be able to supply alcohol for on and off-site consumption. Under the current owner, the kitchen has obtained and retained a 5 Star Hygiene Rating and had accreditation for Safe and Local Supplier Approval (SALSA) and organic Soil Association certification.

The property is offered for sale with all furniture, fixtures and fittings from the pub/ restaurant, letting rooms and kitchen included. A full inventory can be provided upon request.
