Rare Opportunity in Residential Oxford

The Ampleforth Arms is ideally positioned at the very heart of Risinghurst, Oxford. Surrounding the pub, the different groups of residents are made up of affluent families and young professionals, which provides an excellent opportunity for an experienced publican or entrepreneur to create a lucrative business.

This pub is currently a drinks led site with no food on offer and so would benefit from a tasty, classic food menu, whilst still attracting locals with great drinks and an even better atmosphere.

Attitude is more valuable than experience. If you’ve got the following, we’d love to hear from you.

  • Understanding of the local community
  • You know what it takes to build a successful business
  • You love hospitality and are great with customers

An enviable courtyard can be found to the rear for sunny, summer day refreshments. There is parking to the front and on-street parking also.
