Looking to run a pub?
The Mark of Friendship is a community mainstream pub with a lovely traditional feel to it. If controlled well, it could become the music pub in the village, with live music and open mic nights. It also has a pool table and darts boards, so could be an ideal base for all the local teams to play from.
This pub trades from a small corner bar to the left of the entrance, with seating to both the left and the right. There’s also a wood burner and a raised area with seating. To the rear of the bar, is the pool room and the toilet facilities. On the ground floor is the cellar and the kitchen, which is currently domestic. Outside, there’s a small split-level courtyard area. Free Wi-Fi is provided throughout.
The domestic accommodation consists of two bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
Punch are planning a modest investment to cover an internal sparkle and exterior decoration.
