Hilton Smythe proudly introduces to the market the delightful Brookside Inn. This traditional village public house and restaurant has an excellent reputation with loyal returning clientele.
This historical inn was founded in the 18th century and has been under the careful ownership of our client for the last 13 years and is reluctantly offered for sale as our clients look to relocate.
This quaint public house is full of character with original beams and open fireplace, exceptionally maintained throughout and seating for around 50 covers. The Brookside Inn is renowned for its quality high class freshly prepared home cooked food, fine wines and real ales.
Additionally, the business benefits from extensive grounds, covering around an acre and hosting a substantial car park and beer garden with seating area for around 50 covers with a covered area. Numerous outbuildings including 3 garages, 3 sheds, bottle store, dry store, workshop and car port. The area could easily house a marquee, with the potential to introduce private parties to bring in additional income.
There is also a small holding to the rear of the property, offering the scope to introduce livestock.
Furthermore, the business boasts 2 bedroom living accommodation above the public house.
Naturally, we would highly recommend viewing this outstanding business in this scenic location.
