A traditional village pub, the Blacksmiths is located in the ‘hospitality hotspot’ between Darlington and Richmond. In recent years and with the assistance and eye of an interior designer, the pub has been elegantly converted into a 21st century gastro pub through extensive refurbishment and redecoration. With a new contemporary look, the Blacksmiths still encompasses many traditional features including stone fireplaces and walls.

The Blacksmiths comprises a drinking area to the front and a dining area to the rear which includes a large modern conservatory and patio section offering picnic bench seating. The site also benefits from two bed owner’s accommodation and a large car park.

David Cash, Business Agent in Christie & Co’s Newcastle office who is handling the sale, comments, “Since purchasing the pub through Christie & Co in late 2014, Kevin and Frances have spent a significant amount of time, energy and money turning what was a closed, rundown pub into a contemporary pub and restaurant with an excellent atmosphere. The business is still growing and presents a fantastic opportunity for either a first time purchaser or an experienced operator to come in and trade well here.”

Existing owners, Kevin and Frances Hacking, are also leasehold owners of The Shoulder of Mutton, Middleton Tyas, and until recently were tenants at the Beeswing at East Cowton.

The freehold of the Blacksmiths Arms is on the market at £239,950.
