LOCATION AND SITUATION
The property is situated on the main arterial road through the village, B3227, and is opposite Langtree Parish Hall and infant school. The Towns of Bideford and Great Torrington are 8 and 4 miles away respectively.
THE PROPERTY AND CONSTRUCTION
The main building is a two storey stone construction under a pitched slate roof, with an adjoining single storey extension to the side which was added to create a separate restaurant / function suite. There is considerable character within the building none more so than within the main lounge bar which has beamed ceilings, exposed stonework and feature fireplaces. Further commercial parts at ground floor include a pool room, 60 cover restaurant / function suite and commercial kitchen. The private accommodation at first floor level offers 4 / 5 bedrooms with separate lounge and kitchen and can easier be separated to create accommodation suitable for dual family occupation or alternatively Bed and Breakfast rooms could be offered. To the rear of the property is a car park which provides rear access to the property as well as barn / storage building which houses a skittle alley. Also to the rear of the property is walled beer garden and patio area.
Our clients are inviting offers for the Freehold interest.
Having been purchased by our client in 2013 the business is currently operated 6 evenings per week, from 6pm, with all day opening undertaken on Sundays. Our client has previously franchised the food operation to a third party but has taken this back "in house" since April 2017 and offers "home cook pub food" as well as a Sunday carvery. It is thought new owners could easier and significantly expand the food offering as well as increase the operating hours. The business is operated by our client with 8 part time members of staff including bar staff and table waiting staff. There are 3 skittles teams and 1 darts team that utilise the premises as their home venue.
Any current stock to be purchased at valuation upon completion.
The property is sold with the benefit of a Premises Licence.
The property is sold with an inventory of trade fixtures, fittings and equipment.
