Exeter Arms

Boasting an idyllic village location within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Exeter Arms is very popular amongst the Oakham locals. The pub is well-known for its excellent gastro pub menu, traditional atmosphere with open fires and exposed beams, and its 1.5-acre garden with an alfresco dining area.

The previous owners, Symes & Co operated the business for a number of years and built the business to a very high standard, having the pub refurbished in 2020. They comment, “Matt at Christies was able to achieve an acceptable offer within a couple of weeks of the Exeter Arms hitting the market. His assistance in driving the offer through to completion in an appropriate time scale was invaluable to us. This is the first time we had marketed through Christies having previously worked with two other companies with different pub projects, Christies/Matt Hill’s knowledge of the market place helped us achieve our objectives in good time realising full potential.”

The pub has been bought by Amanda and Darren Wells, who are keen to putting their own stamp on the business.

Matt Hill, Broker at Christie & Co who handled the sale, comments, “I am pleased to be able to help join these two parties together and arrange a new lease with the freeholder. This continues to show that Christie & Co are well placed within this competitive market as the leading brokers in the hospitality sector.
