The Canary & Linnet is a detached, brick-built building which is predominantly over two stories under a pantile roof.

A central entrance porch opens into the cosy bar area, which caters for c. 30 covers and features a brick bar servery and inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. Male and female WCs are located to the left hand side. The rear trade area is spacious and is capable of providing in the region of 60 covers. It is currently being used as a games room but would make an ideal restaurant, given the views of the garden and convenient access to/from the kitchen. The kitchen is generous in size and includes trade extraction, a wash/prep area and access to the cellar, which is at ground floor level.

The private accommodation comprises a living room and kitchenette at ground floor level, with 3 bedrooms (two doubles) on the first floor along with a 3-pc shower room.

Externally, the pub is set back from the road behind a large dedicated car park, providing an abundance of off-road parking. The delightful front garden is enclosed behind a low-level fence and is laid to lawn, with mature trees and hedgerow and tables for 36 covers. The sizeable rear trade garden is mainly laid to lawn and has a patio area with tables providing 60 covers. At the immediate southwest of the site there is a driveway leading to a detached double garage and private garden. The garage has electricity connected.


The area of the site is 1.1 acres. The ground floor area (GEA) of the public house extends to 240m² (2,583ft²). Measurements are taken from digital mapping and are approximate.

The Business

Our client does not operate the business so we do not have access to trading information. We are advised the business is currently 100% wet sales only, meaning there is tremendous potential to introduce a new food menu and reestablish the business as a destination, food-led pub. We understood the property previously obtained the benefit of planning consent for bed and breakfast rooms to the rear garden (now expired).
