Loxwood is a thriving community set in a corner of the Weald of Sussex near the Surrey border. Loxwood is one of the key places from which to enjoy the restored sections of the Wey and Arun Canal – the Victorian Canal that used to link London to the South Coast by connecting the River Wey around Guildford with the River Arun in West Sussex. For guests who prefer to be on the water rather than next to it, the Wey and Arun Canal have seasonal boat trips which start and finish just outside the pub which are very popular in the summer.

* 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.
