Property Features:

On the Herefordshire-Shropshire borders, close to Leominster and Ludlow, this refurbished village pub is full of charm and character. Yarpole is close to the National Trust properties of Croft Castle and Berrington Hall, the ‘Black and White Village Trail’, the Mortimer Trail long-distance walk, Cycling Byways, a local caravan site, Hampton Court and Oaker Wood Outdoor Activities - all giving potential footfall and revenue streams.

Internally there are three trade areas, with beams and a log burner and including the attached ancient Cider Barn, plus a kitchen capable of 100 covers.

Externally there is a large beer garden and generous car park offering plenty of options for a successful business. In addition, a level grassed area to the rear of approximately ½ acre provides excellent potential for events and, subject to planning, overnight accommodation.

Trading Style:

A community-owned Free House in a friendly and engaged village, suited for both local trade and to become a food-led destination. Herefordshire is well-supplied with quality local produce, including rare-breed meats, furred and feathered game, fruits, vegetables, artisan ciders, gins and liqueurs, locally made cheeses and farmhouse milk and cream. Success will depend on a combination of local and seasonal business as well as drawing customers from the surrounding area with a high-quality food repertoire of short, regularly changing menus. Being a meeting place for local interest groups, holding themed events, occasional live music, real ale or cider festivals will all add to the variety and appeal of the offering. 

The ideal candidates will be a chef and front-of-house pair, with sufficient experience to re-launch and develop the pub. A warm and friendly style and culinary expertise are essential, together with an ambition to build a long term lifestyle business in a wonderful community in this beautiful part of the country. The owners will support the tenant in every way possible.

Private Accommodation:

Above the pub is the tenant’s flat, consisting of four bedrooms, a large lounge, a re-fitted bathroom and central heating.

Key Financial Information

Please note that the energy performance certificate is available from the landlord.

Length of Tenure: 3 years initial, with a view to a longer-term arrangement.
