Rifleman Nantwich THE BARONY



Pub location on map


The Rifleman is a true community local pub and something of a hidden gem, tucked away amongst housing just off the Barony Road, close to Nantwich Town Centre. The pub has been refurbished giving it a warm and contemporary feel. The Rifleman benefits from a cosy open fireplace in the lounge area, as well as a sizeable grassed beer garden and patio, and good size car park to the front of the pub. Many of the regulars are drawn from the streets around the Rifleman and partake in traditional pub games with something on nearly every night of the week. Live sport is also shown at the pub and it is the venue for many local groups and societies. Robinsons are seeking an experienced community pub licensee who can continue to drive the trade at this popular ‘all-year-round’ pub and integrate themselves into the heart of the community. 

Trading Accommodation

As the Rifleman has recently benefited from a recent refurbishment the decor and furnishings are in good condition. Inside, the one bar servery is accessed from three main areas within the pub. At the front there are two rooms, one with an inviting open fire and the other with a pool table. There is also a larger lounge where regulars can enjoy watching sport, darts and occasional entertainment. Outside the pub benefits from a good sized car park which can accommodate around 12 cars, and a generous grassed beer garden and patio area.
