Hilton Smythe is welcoming to the market, The Kings Arms hotel, trading as a pub and a bed and breakfast. The building is extremely well presented with 8 en-suite letting rooms and a 1 bed flat used as living accommodation. The building has been renovated to a very modern standard, and our clients have made great use of the ample space the hotel has to offer.

This friendly pub has its own local darts and pool team and is especially busy for football matches displayed on the TV's in the bar areas.

The current owners have fitted a large commercial kitchen which gives the new buyer opportunity to introduce pub lunches and evening meals etc.

Early viewing of this popular community pub/hotel is highly recommended with the business genuinely coming to the market as our clients looks towards a career change.

This is a great opportunity for anybody looking to get into the trade. This hotel and pub already has a fantastic reputation and the foundations to build upon. Utilising social media, booking websites, advertising and extending opening hours would benefit the already healthy turnover.

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing.



We are advised the business is Freehold.
