This destination mainstream pub attracts healthy levels of trade from local villagers, many of whom are regular customers, returning week after week. However, there’s also potential to broaden and market its appeal to a wider audience, and a planned refurbishment will help modernise the interior.

Higher Kinnerton is a village in rural Flintshire, just inside the Welsh border about 5 miles south-west of the city of Chester. With a population of about 1,700, the village has a Post Office, a shop, a school and two pubs. There are lots of residential properties within easy walking distance of the Royal Oak, predominantly detached and semi-detached homes. With its destination mainstream offer, the pub is perfectly placed to pull in passing custom from people travelling on the nearby A55 North Wales Expressway or on a day out to Broughton Shopping Park.
An ideal opportunity for an operator with catering experience or someone who has a good team around them – and the existing team are all fantastic. This is a very busy pub, but there’s potential to drive business further, so it needs a strong pair of hands at the helm.
