Falcon Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this well-presented Public House which occupies a prime trading position in the centre of this sought-after Somerset Village. It has been under the proud ownership of our clients since 2006 during which time they have made considerable improvements and refurbishments to the premises. It is now reluctantly being placed on the market as the owners wish to move abroad.

During our client’s stewardship the business has built up an excellent reputation for its welcoming atmosphere, good food and great service.

This extremely well presented turnkey Public House prides itself as being the heart of the local community and is well supported with several Skittles and Darts teams. It also offers Newspapers for sale and customers collect them on a daily basis. This thriving business is mainly operated as a wet led Public House with a simple food menu which is cooked to order. It is considered the premises are suitable for all types of cuisine

The business is run by our clients with help from casual staff and generates a turnover in the region of £90,000 per year with healthy gross profit margins. There is tremendous potential to increase the turnover by possibly extending the food offering to include breakfasts.

This rarely available opportunity is not to be missed and early negotiations with Falcon Commercial come highly recommended
