Major refurbishment planned

An extensive refurbishment at this beautiful pub in heart of a picturesque village in Hertfordshire, will include a complete redecoration and refurbishment to the indoor and outdoor trading spaces. We will add a new external courtyard with heating and lighting which will allow for use throughout the year and not just the summer months. This will be a premium pub for locals and those further afield to visit. 

Sensational location

The pub itself is located in Whitwell. The garden area backs onto a large field and shows off the beautiful rolling countryside that surrounds the Bull. The pub is also popular with walking groups due to its prime location. The pub benefits from affluent demographics and a strong existing customer base.

Bags of potential

With an excellent range of premium food and drinks, complete refurbishment and a stunning setting all gives the pub untapped potential to be a successful business. The Bull will give people a reason to stay local rather than going into town. The garden with its newly added courtyard will also be a key trade driver and it will boast almost 150 covers inside and out.
