The Business

The Kings Arms has been successfully trading under a couple who have leased the property for the last 18 years. They now wish to retire. During their tenure they have created a warm family friendly establishment, serving comforting home cooked food. There is a loyal 'locals' trade, as well as 'drop in' trade from those passing or visiting the area. The recent addition of the letting rooms is now an exciting project ready to be undertaken by new owners. The rooms have proved very popular with wedding parties, couples or tourists visiting the area, as well as executive contractors. At present the business is open 12pm - 11pm 7 days a week. This is an ideal venture for an enthusiastic couple looking to focus on the F&B and accommodation side of the business, as well as hosting regular events for the local trade. The successful applicant will be well supported by the landlord (in a financial capacity), in order to ensure trade flourishes.
