The accommodation comprises a ground floor pub/restaurant with fully equipped commercial kitchen and cellar barrel pump room. Upstairs there are 6 hotel bedrooms plus large managers maisonette comprising 4 reception rooms, kitchen, 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The property is generally in good condition although could benefit from cosmetic updating. The property now offers a unique opportunity to continue as pub and hotel with significant scope to increase both sides of the business or wholesale redevelopment subject to planning.

Development Potential

The land to the side and rear of the property offers an opportunity for infill development subject to the necessary planning consents. Whilst two applications for 23 and 14 dwellings have been refused there is still significant scope for a smaller development that preserves the existing sightlines to the property. The building itself offers an opportunity to reconfigure the upper floors to create more guest accommodation by reducing the size of the managers flat. Alternatively the property could be converted entirely into residential accommodation subject to the necessary planning consents being obtained.
