PROFITABLE CHARACTER DESTINATION INN WITH 5 EN-SUITE LETTING ROOMS

Stonesmith are delighted to be marketing the Prestleigh Inn, a substantial and deceptively spacious character village inn, which is now available on either a freehold or a free of tie leasehold basis.

The Prestleigh Inn occupies a prominent landmark trading position adjacent to the busy A371 and boasting direct access onto the Bath & West Showground site, offering the nearest accommodation to the venue.

Having been the subject of upgrade and refurbishment during our clients 9 years of ownership, the inn is presented to an extremely high standard throughout. This popular and well regarded destination inn briefly comprises:- Main Bar (26+), Lounge Bar (22+), Restaurant (56), well equipped Commercial Catering Kitchen with ancillary facilities, 5 En-Suite Letting Bedrooms and attractive 2 Double Bedroom Owners Accommodation with Sitting Room, Kitchenette and Shower Room. Externally, the property benefits from lawned Trade Gardens to the rear with panoramic country views and seating around 100 customers, a Children’s Play Area and two Private Customer Car Park Areas for 50 plus vehicles.

The extremely profitable business enjoys a popular local following and boasts a strong year-round regular trade not only from the nearby village of Prestleigh but also from the surrounding villages and towns. Additionally trade receives an uplift from visitors to the area and particularly to the numerous shows and events hosted by the Bath & West Showground, with high demand for the letting accommodation. The business has seen continual year on year growth during our client’s ownership. The business has its own website www.prestleighinn.co.uk, and has been voted as a great community hub, winning an award from Heinz, as a real heart of the local community. The pub benefits from a darts team and a pool team.
