A vacant freehold public house with beer garden and refurbished living accommodation recently trading and offering scope to reopen or reconfigure, subject to obtaining appropriate planning consent.

Property Description

The property comprises a two storey end of terraced building with a pitched tiled roof and off street parking for two cars to the side via a gated entrance. The property benefits from A4 use classification. The ground floor comprises traditional entrance with access to the Lounge to the left and the Bar to the right. Both areas upon inspection were of good interior condition with the Pub trading just a few weeks prior to inspection. The cellar is accessed via a hatch at the bar and appeared in good condition with modern equipment in place. To the rear of the property is access to a bear garden, Male and Female WCs and stairs leading to the first floor. We have been verbally advised that fixtures and fittings will remain upon completion.


Bar side seating area approx. 270 sq.ft (25 sq.m)

Lounge area approx. 317 sq.ft (30 sq.m)


The first floor accommodation is accessed via a staircase leading to a hallway. It appears to have been recently plastered and finished to good standard with modern looking double glazed windows and boiler in place.

The accommodation comprises -

First Floor Landing

There is a gated drive to the side beer garden and rear stores not inspected.


We feel the premises would be suitable for conversion into apartments by removing the bar and creating two self-contained units or an HMO development subject to appropriate planning consent.
