Closed pub seeks new lease of life

​The Three Tuns in the affluent village of Guilden Morden on the Cambridgeshire/Hertfordshire border has been brought to the market by specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co.

The detached 160 year old Grade II Listed property, which is listed as an Asset of Community Value (ACV), sits on a plot of approximately 0.6 of an acre and retains many character features but is in need of complete refurbishment throughout.  

The two storey property currently comprises a front entrance lobby, two bar areas, a kitchen, bottle store, utility room, store room, cellar, ladies and gentlemen’s toilets and three bedroom first floor accommodation. 

Externally, there is a parking area for 20 vehicles, a garden, including a patio area and smoking shelter, which in its current state could cater for approximately 80 covers, but could be used as an overflow car park, if required.

Mark Loveday of Christie & Co’s Reading Office is handling the sale and comments: “The Three Tuns is an exciting opportunity and provides the foundation for a successful destination orientated pub focussing on high quality food.  The re-opening of this property would be greatly supported by the local community and in the right hands could draw in customers from neighbouring Cambridge, which is only 20 minutes’ drive away.”

Christie & Co is seeking £385,000 for the freehold.
