not specified / Leisure / Pubs/Bars/Clubs

For Sale - £360,000.00

Available - Last updated: 23 April 2019

THE BUSINESS - The Plough Inn is a well established and renowned Village Inn which attracts customers not only from the village but from surrounding towns and villages for bar meals etc. The menu consists of traditional bar favourites along with “specials”.

The Plough Inn is currently closed all day on a Monday and is open on a Tuesday evening for drinks. On Wednesday and Thursdays the Inn is open at lunchtime and from 5.30pm to 11.00pm. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday there is all day opening. Although the business is trading successfully in its current format, there is still potential to be realised by new owners such as opening on a Monday (especially during the summer months and bank holidays), offering outside bar facilities for functions in the village hall and potentially creating a retail sales area for villagers. The business is run by a husband and wife team with the assistance of three part-time staff.
