The Monks Retreat is a popular Village Inn which serves both the local community and the wider catchment area between Totnes, Newton Abbot and Torbay. The Inn is currently run under management on behalf of the 2 local freehold owners, and trades with a healthy mix of food and wet sales.

The Inn would be well suited to an ‘owner driver’ couple, with one being from a chef/catering background. The property has low overheads, little or no requirement for any further capital investment and a captive audience providing a wonderful opportunity for new owners to stamp their mark on this rather special pub. There is plenty of untapped potential to grow the business further including the reintroduction of the letting bedrooms.

The local freeholders are keen to secure a successful tenant and this is reflected in the realistic premium and rental structure on offer.

Our clients will also consider a sale of their freehold interest to suitable applicants with further details available on request or alternatively will consider offering a new tenant an ‘Option to Purchase’ the freehold interest.

The property is available to let by way of a new free of tie and fully repairing and insuring lease with exact terms to be agreed by negotiation but no less than 10 years. Guide rent of £22,000 per annum based on a new 10 Year. The lease premium covers goodwill, use of the furnishings and fittings and wet stock.

The furnishings and fittings will be used by the tenant however will remain under the ownership of the landlord.

Dry stock in trade will be taken over by the purchaser at valuation on the day of completion.

We have been informed the premises are connected to mains water, sewerage and electricity. Oil fired central heating. LPG cooking gas.
