Looking to run a pub?
Have you got what it takes to take this pub’s food offer and letting potential to the next level? This popular locals’ pub is full of character and Cask Marque accredited, and it enjoys good drinking trade as a result. But there’s scope to build the business, with an opportunity to enhance the food offer by creating more of a destination offer and also to optimise the profitability of two lovely letting rooms. The Star Inn is a 17th century, Grade II listed community pub. It’s a real locals’ venue, and that’s where its focus must remain, but there’s plenty of potential to attract a few holidaymakers over the summer months too.
This large community pub operates out of three separate trading areas, which are full of old-style character. The large bar area is home to a popular pool table and a cosy wood burner, plus there’s a separate split-level dining and conservatory area with 50 covers in total. A function room is also available. Outside, there’s a large car park with space for 25 cars, a beer garden and a smoking solution.
The domestic accommodation consists of two bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
About the local area
Situated about 4 miles from Hayle and just a few minutes from the main A30 route through the area, St Erth is a tranquil village, centred around the village shop and church, with a small river running to the south. There are plenty of walkers and cyclists passing through in fine weather, thanks to scenic riverside walks past bird sanctuaries and the causeway, and the presence of the National Cycle Route 3. Just a short distance from both Hayle on Cornwall’s north coast and Penzance on the south coast, St Erth sits in a rural location and has a mix of young families, local workers and retried people. St Erth railway station is a key transport link in the area.
