Property Features:

The Bennet Arms is located in the village of Rougham, 4 miles from Bury St Edmunds and 1.5 miles from Thurston. Rougham is a large village that has good amenities including a Post Office, a village shop and a sports hall.  

This pub sits on a very large plot with car parking for 15 vehicles, a generous children's play area with a bouncy castle. There is also an outside bar, food serving area and several outdoor trade spaces with bench seating.

Internally the pub trades from an L shaped bar area with 40 covers that has a small extension with a pool table. The catering kitchen is fully fitted and in good working order. The Bennett Arms is in good condition having had a full refurbishment with new carpets.

Trading Style:

The Bennett Arms is a community pub which should be at the heart of the village and all that goes on there. Hosting charity events, and fun days would make great use of the fantastic outside space. Ensuring there is an enticing calendar of events including live entertainment, quiz nights and the like is also vital to reinvigorating trade. The food offer is also critical to success, currently, the site offers a solid pub grub menu with the popular addition of a Sunday Lunch menu.

The successful applicant will have the desire to become a huge part of village life and the vision to place the pub at the heart of the community. Ideally, they will have catering experience as food is key to success here and as ever high standards and service values will be essential.

Private Accommodation:

This is in good condition throughout, with three double bedrooms, a lounge, office, bathroom and separate toilet.
