Destination pub/restaurant which is situated in a quaint Buckinghamshire village approx. Four miles south west of Buckingham and 9 miles from Bicester on the boarders of Oxfordshire just off the A4421.
The dynamics of the business has been changed in a short space of time. Having completely refurbished the property before reopening, the business has enhanced the customer base and now enjoys regular trade which continues to grow, mainly by word of mouth such is the reputation of the food and customer service.
There are many small villages surrounding the pub and restaurant although there are good road links via the M40, A41 and A421 close by making it easily accessable for those coming further afield. The location provides limited passing trade during the day although it has become a ‘destination’ venue during the evenings and weekends having gained a reputation for being able to cater for large parties within the main seating area.
The business can seat approx. 40 covers internally at any time with a reputation for being family and dog friendly. The beer garden to the front provides an ideal place to enjoy a drink or meal. The menu is varied and caters for most tastes with most ingredients sourced locally wherever possible.
Current records and accounts can be inspected when viewing by genuinely interested parties.

The business operates from a highly visible, two storey detached period property which we are advised dates back to the 1600’s and has a thatched roof. Car parking for both staff and customers can be found to the rear of the property.
Fully fitted commercial kitchen with numerous stainless prep tables, extraction facilities, 6 burner hob, griddle and turbo fan oven.
Storage areas and ample refrigeration facilities.
Mainly open plan with a wonderful, light and airy feel providing a total of 40 covers within the main restaurant. The traditional tables and chairs provide flexible seating arrangements and can accommodate large parties, especially at Christmas time for corporate functions.
Well-designed bar area with bespoke wood panelling, storage and display shelving for wines and spirits along with inset lighting.
Due to the refit, the fixtures and fittings are presented in excellent condition throughout.
Small beer garden with bench style seating to the front along with car park to the rear for staff and customers. In our opinion the rear of the property could be developed to provide additional outside seating or provide a BBQ area.

A superb opportunity for a hands on, experienced operator to take this business on to the next level and to further develop the customer base by taking advantage of a first class location and reputation gained under the current ownership.
An inspection is highly recommended to fully appreciate the business opportunity, overall setting and village location.
