Occupying a 17th century timber-framed building on a spacious plot in a prominent location close to Welshpool, this community mainstream pub is brimming with potential. An eye-catching pub with a very traditional look and feel, it has bags of potential to kick up to the next level of trade. Serving an expanded food menu across more consistent opening hours could really make a difference to overall income. The Oak has a great following among locals and is known for its home-cooked food. Tourists frequent this pub during holiday season and there’s an opportunity to explore events here too.
The Oak is an open plan trading operation, with low beams adding to the traditional ambience. The pub is Cask Marque accredited and the kitchen can provide up to 50 covers in the main bar and restaurant areas. Live TV sports coverage pulls in sports fans and a fabulous external children’s play area makes this a popular place for families. The pub benefits from a large beer garden, extensive parking for up to 30 cars, plus a smoking solution. The outside space is a real asset and could easily be used for hosting community events, fun days with BBQs, and beer & food festivals. Free WiFi is available throughout.
The domestic accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
The Oak is located in the beautiful village of Guilsfield, about 3 miles north of Welshpool. It’s set back from the main B43932 road through the village, behind a large car park that makes this an ideal stop for tourists passing though the Mid-Wales area. The village itself has a population of about 1,700, and local custom is likely to be both walk-in and drive-to.
This would be an ideal opportunity for a couple or a family with chef experience, as one person would need to be in the kitchen to make this work full-time with another looking after the front of house operations.
