Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market this quintessential English country public house and restaurant which was established in the 17th century and has been under the loving care of our client since 1994, with the business genuinely coming to the market due to our client's wishes to retire.
This charming business offers a complementary blend of traditional furnishings, relaxed atmosphere with high quality cuisine. The business has an enviable reputation for its real ales, fine wines and outstanding restaurant. The restaurant offers an extensive menu of freshly cooked dishes, using locally sourced produce and is of the highest quality.
The business is extremely popular and is very well supported by the local community, with 3 pool teams, 2 darts teams and 3 dominoes teams playing regularly. The business also hosts regular quiz night's drawing much repeat trade from locals, and with the restaurants excellent reputation attracting residents from surrounding villages, the business reports a fantastic turnover.
Additionally, there is a 3 bedroom owner's accommodation recently refurbished to exacting standards.
Naturally, early viewing of this rare opportunity to purchase a highly profitable business with first class accommodation in this desirable location is highly recommend.
