Property Features:

The Fox is a stunning 17th-century rural village pub located between the church and village green in the small village of Aspenden. It is near the A10 and only half a mile from Buntingford.

This is a traditional village local with an open fireplace, exposed beams, wooden floors, low ceilings, and quirky private accommodation. The large bar area has a second private dining/function room adjoining with 40 internal covers. There is also a large beer garden, and the car park to the front can accommodate around 12 cars. The kitchen is fully equipped with fryers, griddle, range cooker, merry chef, microwaves, fridges, and freezers.

A few years ago now The Fox has benefitted from a full external refurbishment with new lighting and signage, and the pub is still in great condition.

Trading Style:

This site offers an outstanding opportunity as it has proven turnover and profitability. It is 50/50 split wet/dry with three hand- pulls on the bar and ale is a big part of the sales mix here with well-known national brands and regularly uses SIBA offering very local ales too.

The Fox is coming to market as the current tenancy agreement is expiring and the pub company are looking for a new operator with a proven track record of delivering a solid food offer. The capacity to drive sales through the right promotions and using digital marketing effectively to make this site “the food pub” in the area is essential. However, the new operator will also have to ensure that The Fox remains at the heart of the village and surrounding area as the pub to come and have a drink as well.

Private Accommodation:

This consists of two double bedrooms, a lounge area with office space and a bathroom with toilet and shower.
