It’s a vibrant town with a population of just under 15,000 which is set to increase with several further housing developments locally. With the beautiful River Tiffey running through the town, Wymondham is the perfect place for shopping, country walks and pub trips.

Pub Layout

There is a main bar area with a snug and a larger room just off the bar. The actual bar servery is on the smaller side so the right licensee will need to be very savvy and organized! There is additional seating on the first floor which is also used as a function room. There are extensive covers externally within the garden and patio area which makes the pub especially popular on sunny days. The trade kitchen is on the ground floor so is easy access to all areas. There is also one main cellar but two additional cellar storage areas to accommodate the stock needed for this larger pub.

The pub is a key meeting point for the town with a large real ale following. Food here is key too, given the extensive kitchen facilities and a full a la carte menu previously offered. The garden area sees plenty of use and has been the location for large beer festivals which should return here in the summer months.

The current licensees had won numerous awards and have a large following yet there is still potential to build on this and  develop all aspects of the business further with a refreshed food and drink offer. This is a large pub and not for someone new into the industry but for experienced and highly motivated licensees who can see the potential here. The right licensee will be savvy in terms of cask ale and good food.
