Upstairs is all domestic accommodation whilst downstairs makes up the trading areas of a small public bar, a large lounge/dining bar area, toilets & a well equipped commercial kitchen. The pub is the only facility in the village. The pub has been with the same tenant for 30yrs, who have decided it is time to retire. The pub has a very well established older clientele base who frequent the pub more through the lunchtime hours rather than in the evening.

Pub Layout

As you enter the front main entrance you have a choice of two doors. To right you would access the public bar area with small bar servery & gents toilets. The area will seat approx. 30 customers & is used predominately for drinking & showing TV Sport.

To the left, you enter into the large lounge area with a good sized bar servery with a good choice of draught beers & a back bar displaying its wine & spirits offer. Currently the lounge area is used for serving its traditional food offer & a quieter more relaxed drink. The area will accommodate approx. 60 covers. This area leads out from a side door to the well kept garden & terrace area.

Large terrace & garden are to side of the building that can be accessed from the main lounge/dining bar area. The garden is well fenced in for safety. A small children’s play area with climbing tree is also in use. No current external covered area, that will be looked at, to benefit from year round trading

The pub trades as a traditional country tavern, with a good selection of cask ales, premium beers & a traditional country food menu with offers for various age groups & days of the week. Currently its day trade is very strong with regular customers who have been coming to the pub for many many years for lunch. Opportunity to build on the current trade with more focus on late afternoons, early evenings & night time trade.
