This is a unique opportunity for an experienced tenant to take on this exceptional pub that we have not advertised as a vacancy since we purchase the pub in 1936. This pub has been in with same family and friends for almost 90 years! During this time, the pub has been transformed from a humble hostelry to an award-winning hotel and restaurant. This impressive, red brick, 4 Star Hotel, restaurant and bar, was built in the 1930’s. On entering, the pub has more the feel of a country house, than a suburban hostelry, with its wooden beams and antlers adorning the walls. As you enter the pub you are met with a large corridor, the letting bedrooms are upstairs to the left and the pub and function room is round to the left. The function room is of a good size, seating up to 100 people comfortably, with its own bar area serving the room and access to the outside. The bar and restaurant areas are kept to a high standard with TV’s in the bar and 36 seats in the restaurant area, this area is separated from the long bar by a stained-glass partition. The current tenant has invested a lot of time and money into refurbishing and keeping the pub to a high standard. Upstairs there are 7 spacious, versatile, and extremely well kept en-suit bedrooms.
As you enter the large sized car-park, you are met with the impressive sight of the red bricked Broadoak pub, hotel, and restaurant. The front of the pub is an impressive sight with beautiful hanging baskets and planters. You can enter the pub from either the left- or right-hand side.
