A substantial three storey period property with courtyard area to the rear with car parking and partially enclosed outside trading area. Further stone building provides a skittle alley/function room. The two main ground floor trading areas have been beautifully decorated and refurbished, providing spacious, character rooms served via a well fitted interconnecting central bar servery. A well equipped commercial kitchen with extensive ‘back of house’ storage enables a substantial catering facility to provide for any style of cuisine and large number of diners.

Of particular note is the en-suite letting accommodation, which currently provides 5 twin, double and family letting rooms, giving a considerable boost to the food and beverage revenue of the business. There is potential to increase this to 8 en-suite letting rooms if a new owner so wishes. There is also a very attractive owners flat on the top floor of the property adding to the appeal of the property as a ‘home and income’ opportunity.
