The Catash Inn is a stone built, traditional corner pub in the picturesque village of North Cadbury, just ten miles from Yeovil in Somerset on the Dorset/Somerset border. The pub is attractive and has good curb appeal and is how you would typically imagine a cosy village pub. Ideally situated just off the A303 which is seen by many as the main arterial route to the West Country. North Cadbury and the surrounding areas are highly sort after villages to live in and people tend to stay for a long time, making this a fantastic pub to build long lasting relationships with your locals. Nearby is a local village shop for your essentials and the village is surrounded by the beautiful English countryside to explore as well as popular tourist attractions such as The Haynes Motor Museum and The Fleet Air Arm Museum.
As you enter the Catash Inn from the main front door you are greeted by a traditional but airy open plan room. The bar is large and front facing with a perfect balance of wood and neutral colours. To the right hand side is an informal seating area with a cosy open fire place, further on through the building and adjacent to the kitchen is a more formal dining area that is well supported and benefits from a carvery. The pub also benefits from three lettings rooms on the first floor, all of which are in good condition and all have en-suite bathrooms which are newly decorated.
Externally the property boasts a lush, well kept garden with benches scattered across the lawn, this would be the perfect place to relax with a few drinks in the warmer months, and separate to this is a well used skittle alley.
At present the Catash Inn trades as drinks focused community pub with the emphasis being a great community local, however this is a choice the current tenants have made as there is a fully functioning and very well equipped kitchen. There is definite scope to put in an advanced food offer, the success of this pub will depend on this as this site should be in the destination food category. There is ample parking and really attractive kerb appeal. The Catash also has number of skittles teams, and the new tenant would be expected to embrace and be part of this. There is scope to develop further with teams most notably darts, combine this with an entertainment program and community events such as quizzes and live music and this site will flourish.
This is a really exciting opportunity for someone as Admiral Taverns are intending to do a full investment at this site with the right tenant and there is scope to add additional letting rooms should the right tenant be found.
The private accommodation consists of kitchen, office, bathroom, three double bedrooms and a sitting room.

This has the ability to be a great destination food establishment, the site has not been invested in for 25 years, so there is a keen desire from Admiral Taverns to invest in this site. This will involve, full external decoration, lighting and signage, and internal rationalisation with attention being placed also on upgrading the letting rooms. This site would suit a seasoned operator with a track history of success in the destination food market, they must want to focus on being at the heart of the local community and embrace where they live. They must have good social media skills as well as the desire to do a comprehensive food offering. I don’t believe sport will play a big part in this pubs success. The pub needs to be loved and anyone doing so will reap the rewards, retail standards, hanging baskets etc. it really is a blank canvas.
