The pub building dates back to the 15th Century, with real log fires and superb characterful features.  Recently refurbished, the pub combines a traditional ambience with modern equipment and facilities.  Internally, there are many linked guest areas with a central bar servery and the pub enjoys a thriving trade in the locals bar. To the rear of the pub is a large car park leading onto an enclosed patio garden, which features the 4 bedroom letting block.  The cellar, fully equipped trade kitchen and toilet facilities are all situated on the ground floor.

The trade is an eclectic mix of locals, ramblers, destination foodies and staying guests and the ideal applicant therefore needs to be comfortable with the varying demands of the different clientele.  Catering experience would be a distinct advantage and ideal applicants would include chefs and restaurateurs, traditional publicans and current managers or tenants.

The domestic accommodation comprises 3 spacious bedrooms, dining room, large lounge, kitchen, bathroom and office.  It is accessed from within the pub but not through the guest areas.

* Fair Maintainable Trade (FMT) is the level of turnover and profit that we believe that the business is capable of delivering if being operated competently. The FMT is usually calculated by the Business Development Partner for the pub, who will produce a shadow profit and loss account for the business which supports the rent. A copy of the shadow profit and loss account will be provided during the recruitment process. Please see our Code of Practice for more information on FMT and rent. The Fair Maintainable Trade is not a guarantee of levels of trade or profit that will be made from the business – we strongly recommend you seek appropriate independent legal and business advice as part of your Business Plan.

† The Full Investment Breakdown for each public house is higher than the minimum investment we will accept because potential Business Partners with the minimum investment available can still be accepted as we are able to offer them financial support for the rest of the monies. The working capital incorporates the purchase of stock, glassware, loose catering effects and valuer fees – please note the number quoted on this website are based on estimates. The exact costs will be determined on the day you take on the public house by independent valuers and stock takers. Please see our Code of Practice for more information about investment.
