The Church Inn is a substantial stone built pub set on the main road at the edge of the village of Bedwellty, Blackwood. Set in a picturesque countryside, the pub represents an ideal opportunity to acquire a well-supported rural public house in a delightful location. This historic pub, which dates back to the 16th century, boasts many original features including timber beams, flagstone floors and two inglenook fireplaces.

Pub Layout

The Church has the warm old-world feel that you would expect from an Inn dating back to the 16th century. The main trading area of the pub has a single bar operation and there is a ground floor function room with a separate bar servery that can accommodate up to 50 people. This is perfect for small parties and is not currently being used so has the scope to improve sales by utilising this. There is a fully equipped catering kitchen with access from the bar servery that’s situated at the centre of the pub. To the rear of the pub is a courtyard with picnic benches, a real sun trap in the summer months, alongside a car park with ample parking spaces.

Presently, the Church operates primarily as a destination for gourmet pub cuisine, offering an elevated dining experience. Beyond its food offerings, the Church also functions as a central hub for the local community. There is considerable potential to propel the Church further and enhance its overall impact.

The primary focus of the Church Inn should revolve around being the central community hub, with its secondary revenue stream stemming from a strong food offering. The pub is envisioned to host multiple sports teams, contributing to increased mid-week sales. Weekly entertainment, such as karaoke, live singers, and quizzes, which have previously proven to be popular among locals, should also be a consistent feature. Moreover, the site should maintain its commitment to delivering high-quality food options.
