About this property

  • Description
    The property was purpose built as a pub by our client around 25 years ago on a site of 1.143 acres (0.462 hectares). It is a ‘statement’ building in the local area with an impressive thatched roof creating a farmhouse style pub. It is exceptional in both its scale and configuration.
    The ground floor trading area is extensive with space to accommodate over 200 covers with further standing at a long bar servery. It features a large, modern trade
    kitchen and wide ranging back of house areas including walk-in cold stores, beer cellar, staff amenity space and chef’s office. There is also Ladies’, Gentlemen’s and accessible toilets.
    The first floor is also extensive with a function/trading area with space to accommodate approximately 120 covers. Other features include a lift from the ground floor, a function room kitchen, further Ladies and Gentlemen’s WCs and two self-contained areas of living
    accommodation for staff with separate access.
    The outside of the property provides space for over 70 vehicles in a tarmacadam car park as well as a large beer garden with space for over 100 customers.
    The gross internal floor area of the property is approximately 12,281sqft (1,141sqm).

    The property is held on the balance of a 999 year lease from June 1995 at a peppercorn rent.
