The business is located in Little Bedwyn, an affluent village just a mile from the larger village of Great Bedwyn. These both highly sought after villages, with high property values, benefit from a main line railway link to Reading and London along with a bus link to the nearby town of Marlborough.
The Harrow at Little Bedwyn is an imposing detached three storey building built of attractive red and blue brick elevations, under a slate tiled roof with two single storey additions, situated on a good sized, secluded corner plot.
Roger and Sue Jones are selling the Wiltshire business after 21 years at the helm. During this time the restaurant has received an array of prestigious accolades, recognising the restaurant for both its excellent food and wine offering. These include AA Restaurant of the Year 2011, AA Wine List of the Year on two occasions and a Michelin star which it held for 12 years. Chef Roger has also worked with many wine trade bodies during his career, hosting events as well as judging competitions including the UK Sommelier of the Year, and writing for many wine trade publications.
They commented, "The decision has not been easy in many ways, but we feel that we have achieved everything we can and more, so it is time to move onto other things.
“Our experience has been made possible by the loyalty and support of our dear friends and family, not forgetting top suppliers, talented winemakers and an amazing trade that has seen us through so many highlights.”
Nicholas Calfe, Director at Christie & Co, is handling the sale and comments, “This delightful 19th century former public house has been an award-winning Michelin star restaurant for many years. Whilst inevitably this accolade will depart with our clients, its reputation will remain, allowing new ambitious owners the chance to re-establish The Harrow as a quality dining venue."
Christie & Co are offering the freehold interest in The Harrow at a guide price of £735,000.
