Open plan Bar area (c70+ plus standing) is a spacious and well-presented air-conditioned room with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Loose tables and assorted chairs and stools are all complimented by upholstered perimeter bench seating. Areas of carpet and ceramic tiled flooring create a good-sized drinking area and there is an elevated stage area in one corner. 3 x hdtv’s and a big retractable screen with projector enable live sporting events to be shown throughout and there is also a darts throw, juke box and 2 x awp’s.

Restaurant (c32 covers) is a delightful self-contained room to the rear of the property with an elevated conservatory extension providing lovely views of the surrounding area and the beer garden below. Loose tables and chairs sit on a ceramic tiled and carpeted floor with a portable hot deck/carvery in the corner.

Ladies, Gents and disabled wc’s.
The owners’ accommodation is situated on the first floor and consists of a 1 double bedroom bedsit with shower room. The original owners’ accommodation was used to create the en-suite letting rooms however could easily be converted back if desired. Obviously, this would reduce the letting room options. To the side of the property are c5 tandem parking spaces used mainly by the owners.
On the 1st floor of the property are 6 delightful and well-presented en-suite letting rooms (1 family/3 double/1 twin/1 single) all with tea/coffee making facilities, wifi and hdtv.

The property and business are being offered for sale freehold (although we have not had sight of the title deeds). We are advised that all available mains services are connected (no services tested). Business rates payable are advised as being circa £250 per annum to include relevant reliefs.
The current owners purchased the freehold property in 2010 and have since created a desirable business offering fine ales, home cooked food and comfortable accommodation to a loyal, repeat and desirable clientele. Our vendor clients are now looking to sell the freehold on in order to be able to take life at a more leisurely pace. The business is currently operated by the owners themselves assisted by 1 full and 4 part time members of staff. Sitting at the heart of the local community the business offers weekly entertainment, karaoke, quiz night, steak night and a highly popular Sunday lunch. It also hosts many charity functions and shows major sporting events throughout the year. We are advised that accounts declare takings of £181,016 (incl. Vat) to end 31st March 2018. This was achieved on a trade split of 85% Wet sales ; 9% Food sales & 6% Accommodation. New owners could continue to operate the business using the same formula or may wish to take the business to the next level. In our opinion this could be achieved by marketing the letting accommodation on national letting and tourist websites running alongside the introduction of teams and an annual beer festival.
