Roddymoor is a stunning village close to Crook, near Durham. Situated 5 miles north of Bishop Auckland, a market town known as the ‘gateway to Weardale’, Crook is easily accessed via the A68 and A689.  Roddymoor is situated to the north of Crook and The Farrers Arms is at the centre of this thriving and affluent village.  

Surrounded by natural beauty and famous cities including Durham and Newcastle, the area has many attractions and famous country walks.  It is also home to a variety of holiday accommodation. This pub is the choice establishment for people wishing to enjoy a great atmosphere in beautiful surroundings.  

The property is a large, detached public house dating back to the early 1900s. This two-storey property has been tastefully renovated in a style that is sympathetic to the age of the building. It is of brick construction under a pitched tile roof.

The property briefly comprises:- 

Entering to the side of the property from the car park, you are welcomed into a large SERVERY area that serves the entire pub.  This trade area retains plenty of charm and character. It also provides access to the other areas of the pub. 

Left of the Servery is a CARVERY SERVING AREA with a large carvery serving counter. Leading on from the carvery area is the main DINING ROOM with modern décor, making it feel comfortable and cosy. The room is easily accessed from the main servery and comprises wood flooring, dark wooden ceiling beams and industrial lighting.  It offers seating for 44.

All trade areas are of a high standard, with modern interiors. However the property is in keeping with the period, retaining features such as a fireplace and exposed wood. 

LADIES’ and GENTLEMEN’S TOILETS adjacent to main bar area.

The Farrers Arms is serviced by a CELLAR accessed from the side of the property.

Well equipped CATERING KITCHEN and separate WASHING UP ROOM.  To the rear of the kitchen are external storage areas with ample storage for cold and dry stores. 

Located on the first floor is private accommodation comprising THREE DOUBLE BEDROOMS, KITCHEN, BATHROOM and spacious LIVING ROOM. This accommodation is in need of modernisation and repair.  

To the rear of the property is a tarmac CAR PARK and external storage buildings. To the front and rear of the property are BEER GARDENS that are well presented and provide ample seating. The outside areas are extremely popular in the warmer months and increase the pub's capacity significantly. 

Hitherto, the business has been let on a traditional commercial lease and therefore no trading accounts are available.  Prospective purchasers will need to reach their own conclusion as to the potential trade and profitability which can be enjoyed at this outlet. However, the current tenants have informed us that their net turnover is in the region of £500,000 per annum.

FREEHOLD £195,000 to include fixtures and fittings (except for the carvery serving counter which is available to purchase from the exiting tenants). 

Stock at valuation in addition.
