Trading Area & Facilities

Internally the pub is a fantastic size with 3 separate trading spaces, a bar, lounge area and function room. There is a beautiful open fire in the lounge and bar areas that will be opened up to their full use again. The kitchen is a good size to be able to operate a simple pub classics style menu which is what the pub requires, currently there are 40 covers in site with the aim with investment to nearly double this. The site has a great function room that will be invested in to truly capitialise on its multi-functional use.

The externals of the business are in reasonable condition, with a good size car park that has reapirs works planned as well as a plan to extend the garden space to create a true beer garden area that can be enjoyed by all. There are also 2 covered areas externally one outside the rear of the main pub and also outside the function room to provide cover for both areas.

Applicants should be aware that all refurbishments are subject to final board approval which will be determined as part of the leasing process.
