Leasehold for popular Someset pub for sale

The leasehold of The Mendip Inn in the village of Oakhill, Somerset is for sale through Christie & Co off a guide price of £65k. Terms of the new lease are negotiable.

The inn is situated near the Mendip Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which attracts tourists throughout the year.

The popular pub was completely renovated in 2012 and includes an extensive bar and dining area, outdoor seating and a beer garden with 130 covers altogether. The Mendip Inn holds an outstanding reputation for good food, well known for its Sunday lunches, drawing in trade from the surrounding villages and towns.

This presents the perfect opportunity for a new operator to increase the food and drink trade further and to introduce four en-suite bedrooms upstairs by modifying the existing layout. There is also planning permission for six semi permanent structures to be set up in the rear garden as additional accommodation for guests which would be ideal during peak summer and festival times.

Having owned the pub since 2011, the current owner is now looking to focus on a new business venture.

James Ribbons, Business Agent in Christie & Co's Bristol office who is handling the sale comments; 'We are thrilled to be looking for a new leaseholder at The Mendip Inn, a well established business with potential for further growth which we expect will attract a lot of attention from individual and group operators.”
