Specialist property adviser Christie + Co is delighted to present to the open market for the first time in 90 years The Gate Inn, situated in Great Missenden.

The Gate Inn is perfectly placed in the scenic countryside of the Chilterns. Situated in 10 acres of grounds, the pub is an established and traditional 19th century character inn, attracting a good mix of locals and passing trade from High Wycombe, Maidenhead and Aylesbury.

The property’s public areas comprise three main trading areas, a self contained function room, a garden with a children’s play area as well as a 120 square metre outbuilding that was formerly used as a gym but can be converted for alternative use. Next to the play area is an aviary housing exotic birds, which is highly popular with visiting families.

The Gate Inn also benefits from a substantial owners accommodation comprising four bedrooms, a large kitchen, lounge, two bathrooms, office space and a large loft area.

The business enjoys a robust reputation with a high percentage of repeat business for its traditional freshly prepared pub dishes and excellent range of well kept ales. The Gate Inn is listed in the CAMRA good beer guide and has been awarded the pub Cask Marque.

Tim Widdows of Christie + Co’s Reading office is handling the sale. He comments: “The Gate Inn serves as a traditional country pub with additional trade derived from private functions and events throughout the year.”
 
He adds: “Freehold assets of this quality and scale are rarely on the market so we anticipate very strong interest from experienced operators and lifestyle buyers.”

Christie + Co is seeking offers of £875,000 for the freehold interest in The Gate Inn.
