Could you run this pub?
The Three Tuns is a pretty Cask Marque village pub in Barlestone, Leicestershire. It’s a community value pub with character which offers great pub food, ale, music and a home for team games. The pub has a reputation for it’s warm welcome and an excellent, freshly-pulled pint of ale.
As the only pub in the village, it attracts residents and locals across the area for a quick bite, an evening meal or to socialise over drinks and catch up with friends and neighbours. This pub is a real ‘home from home’ for the locals who come here during the day, after work and at weekends; it’s a hub for a great deal of the social activity in this Leicestershire village – and it should stay that way.
The Three Tuns sits on the main street in the village, with its whitewashed walls, traditional signage and attractive planting containers. It offers up to six parking spaces to the front of the pub.
Inside, there’s an L-shaped public bar encompassing a space for pool and games; the rest of the trading area offers mixed fixed and loose seating. The pub also offers a well equipped and maintained commercial kitchen (20 covers), WiFi, and Cask Marque certification ensures ale quality is consistently high and here is also a pleasant beer garden for summertime, along with a smoking solution and the toilets are to the rear.
We are looking to complete a small investment for the beer garden. This will include upgrading the area to make it a great space when the sun is shining.
The pub offers 3 bedrooms, a private kitchen and lounge.
