This long established business is fitted to a high standard and is presented very well throughout. The business host a variety of events and games including, horse racing nights, rugby event weekends, is supported by 2 darts teams, football events, functions and live music.
The owners accommodation is fitted to a very high standard and is decorated with modern and current designs. Each of the rooms are very bright and airy with generous living space in each room. The accommodation includes 5 large bedrooms, storage room, office (formally an en-suite), bathroom and shower room.
The present owner wishes to retire and has been mainly focussed on wet sales, we feel the business could expand into selling foods to increase turnover. The business also has the potential to improve by renting out the splendid function hall and further bedrooms, as well as a superb enclosed beer garden to the rear with outbuildings offering potential for redevelopment.
This is a rare opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
