Sir Audley Arms Chippenham

Premium Pub Planned

Earmarked for major investment of £331k, the Sir Audley Arms is located close to the town centre of historic Chippenham, a thriving market town with plenty of good quality shops. This is a superb pub at the heart of the local community with a ready-made customer base at the doorstep.

As part of the proposed project, the works will refresh the decoration and revamp the look and feel of the pub. As this pub is in good condition, no structural work will be required here. Therefore, externally there will be a refresh of the signage and paintwork and internally there will a re-decoration of all trade areas, including walls, ceilings, flooring, new fixtures & fittings, and a revamp of the toilets and kitchen.

The pub itself is a spacious community local which is currently trading as a drinks led venue with a strong reputation for pub games and sports. With a substantial catering kitchen and a large dining area of 50 covers, the Sir Audley Arms offers an excellent opportunity for an experienced operator who can deliver a simple food offer to complement the existing wet trade.

The calculation of the Estimated Minimum Ingoing Costs assumes a minimum deposit of 1 month's rent or £3,000 (whichever is greater) and that fixtures and fittings (F&F) are rented. The subsequent deposit build up and F&F rental costs are not included in the rent model or ongoing costs below.
