House, dating back to the 14 Century,
stands in the centre of the village of Pembridge, which is one of
Herefordshire's most picturesque villages being signposted on the black and
white trail. The village is
approximately 7 miles west of Leominster, facing the A44. Pembridge is a popular village with the
famous Old Market Hall in the centre.
The village attracts a large number of visitors and is a focal point in
the surrounding area.
owners have established a quality restaurant operation which has been run to
suit their personal lifestyle, but still produces good levels of turnover and
profitability. The trade could be
increased quite substantially without resource to further capitalise
expenditure by merely increasing the
trading hours. There is also the
possibility to create 4 letting bedrooms on the first floor as well as
retaining an excellent private flat.
This is one
of the County's finest hospitality venues, which is currently trading solely as
a restaurant but holds the full premises licence, so could easily be converted
back into an Inn, with the additional benefits of overnight letting
accommodation. The property in brief includes:
a main front door which opens to an enclosed reception area which in turn leads
to the main restaurant which is principally divided up into 3 dining area, the
first of which has brickette fireplace, exposed beamed ceilings with seating
for approximately 12 customers. The
central area of the restaurant, again has exposed beamed ceiling, part wood
panelled walls, feature stone fireplace and currently seats 12 customers. The third area of the restaurant, being the
largest, has black and white half-timbered walls, exposed stone open fireplace
and currently seating approximately 28 customers. The bar servery has a panelled frontage and
customer toilets leading off the restaurant, with the gentleman's toilet having
a slab urinal, w.c. and wash hand basin with quarry tiled flooring and
part-tiled walls. The ladies toilets
having 2 separate w.c. cubicles, vanity unit, wash hand basin, part-tiled walls
and carpeted flooring.
the bar is access to a good sized preparation secondary kitchen area which
leads on to the galley style kitchen to the rear with fully tiled walls and
purpose made stainless steel extractor canopy.
There is an extensive array of commercial grade stainless steel catering
equipment, with a walkway linking the 2 rooms with walk-in cold room additional
storage and access out to the side elevation.
The property has been granted a 5 Star Hygiene Rating. There is a door from the restaurant down to
the beer cellar and there is also a private study/office on the ground floor.
floor accommodation has a wealth of charm and character throughout, and is
currently utilised by the owners as one residence, but could easily be divided
into two separate areas, providing both private and letting accommodation. It is currently set out with a good sized
kitchen with an extensive range of kitchen units, beamed ceilings, breakfast
bar and exposed walls. This could easily
incorporate a seating lounge area. There
is a bathroom and a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room. These three rooms could be separated from the
rest of the accommodation by a doorway, which would provide a private flat if
the other four rooms were utilised for letting purposes. They currently comprise four good size rooms
which provide double bedroomed accommodation, one of which is currently used as
the owners living room, with one having en-suite w.c. There is a separate family bathroom and
separate w.c. off the landing.
to the rear of the property is the commercial garden which has space for
approximately 20 people and offers an excellent additional trading area during
the summer months. To the rear of the
commercial gardens is a private garden, which again is laid to lawn and leads
through to a double garage and metal store building. To the rear of the property is a large Local
Authority owned car park with space for approximately 30 cars.
