Peal O Bells

Holt, LL13 9JP

Please leave your details and our team will be in touch. * fields are required


The Peal ‘O’ Bells is located in Holt, a small village in North Wales, that sits on the banks of the River Dee. The Dee marks the boundary between Wales and England and Holt Bridge was an important border crossing for centuries. The village has a population of approximately 2,000 and is a delightful place to live with a wide range of businesses and a thriving community.

Pub Layout

The pub has recently been refurbished. The layout is open plan and the ‘L’ shaped bar servery easily serves all trading areas. Entrance to the pub is directly off the main road into a cosy snug area which benefits from a log burning stove. The area to the right is currently being used to provide additional dining covers to the rear dining area but could easily be utilised as a drinking/waiting area. The restaurant situated at the back can easily accommodate 40 covers and has a rustic feel. This area leads, via French doors, out onto an impressive beer garden which is overlooked by St Andrew’s Church. The garden is a fantastic addition with a large grassed area used for community events and beer festivals as well as the locals who like to sit out on a summer evening and enjoy a drink or two.

The Peal ‘O’ Bells is a thriving community pub, well known for its wide range of beers, wines, spirits and great quality yet value for money food offer. As the pub is situated next door to St Andrew’s Church this can add an additional income stream catering for events including family gatherings.  The entertainment programme will need to be developed and should include weekly quiz nights, live bands/acts and various themed nights to get the local community supporting this vibrant pub.

Private Accommodation

The private accommodation is located on the first floor and consists of three bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and bathroom all of which are well presented and in good order.
