The Business

Previous tenants ran the business as a popular family friendly pub, that offered traditional home cooked food. Kersey is a notable tourist destination, from which the business notably benefits. The pub has significant potential to push the F&B, as well as offering theme, quiz and games nights for the local community. The extensive garden could also be sensibly utilised during the warmer months for private events, as well as beer and village festivals.
