Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market The Red Lion public house and Amico Di Amici Italian Restaurant.

The Red Lion has been a coach house since 1538 and its charming character is very well known within the area. It is one of the oldest buildings in the area and the second oldest in Stanstead Abbotts.

Our client purchased the business in 2015 and due to other business interests has now decided to put this ‘Turn-key’ business opportunity on the market.

Amico Di Amici serves traditional Italian food along with a very popular traditional 4 meat roast every Sunday between 12 and 5pm.

The Sunday roast is often fully booked and booking in advance is highly recommended.

The pub is fully licenced serving a variety of beers, wines and spirits and comes with a full TV licence to show all Premier League football matches. In addition to watching sport, there are 2 pub successful darts teams.

The business attracts a very loyal local customer base as well as a great passing trade.

Very rarely do pubs with so much history, character or reputation come onto to the open market, and we therefore advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.

The Red Lion public house is located in the affluent Hertfordshire town of Stanstead Abbotts.

Positioned at the top of the High Street on a roundabout, within the heart of the thriving community and highly visible.

There is a large car park to the rear of the premises.

The Red Lion is a coach house dating back from 1538 and Stanstead Abbotts itself lies just off the A414 and A10 with links directly into London, Hertford and Cambridge.

Stanstead Abbotts is also on the Hertford East Branch Line with links into Liverpool Street Station.
