Disabled Access / Facilities
The village of Wrenbury is located in a leafy and quiet corner of South Cheshire, midway between Nantwich and Whitchurch on the Llangollen branch of the Shropshire Union canal. The village benefits from a post office and general stores, medical centre and a primary school, and is very popular with walkers and bike riders. The Cheshire Cycleway passes through the village and the South Cheshire Way, with a long distance footpath just to the south.
The private accommodation consists of 3 bedrooms, a bathroom, and private kitchen.
The Dusty Miller is set in one of South Cheshire's prettiest locations, surrounded by beautiful countryside. Originally a mid-18th century watermill, the Dusty Miller is a popular traditional country pub restaurant situated on the Llangollen Canal in the rural village of Wrenbury, between Nantwich and Whitchurch. The pub's large arched windows offer views of passing boats, while a black-and-white lift bridge, designed by Thomas Telford, completes the picture-postcard setting. The Dusty Miller is an ideal destination for those seeking pub classics done well and is also an excellent pit-stop for walkers and cyclists. Robinsons are looking for an experienced community food operator who can retain the popularity of this pub, integrate well into the community and build upon the food offering.
The building itself oozes historic charm and character and the interior décor and fixtures and fittings are modern and attractive, whilst sympathetic to its surroundings. A large wooden bar services the pub and the various seating and dining areas which can accommodate 85 covers, form an overall 'L' shape at first-floor level. Upstairs there is an unused restaurant area which can seat about a further 40 covers. Outside the pub also benefits from a generous car park, pleasant garden terrace with a further 24 covers as well as a beer garden towards the rear of the pub reached by its own bridge and overlooking the canal which accommodates another 30 covers.

FMT barrelage: Please note that this assessment is based on the "fair maintainable trade" that can be achieved by a "reasonably efficient operator" and is not therefore a guarantee of volume or consequential sales or profit.
Similarly Historic performance, whilst a significant factor to consider, is not a guarantee of future performance of a pub and you should bear this in mind in your assessment of trading potential.
