The Lamb at Satwell in Henley-On-Thames looking for new owner

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has brought to the market The Lamb at Satwell, a rural pub restaurant located close to the affluent riverside town of Henley-on-Thames, South Oxfordshire.

Situated in over an acre of land, nestled in the rolling Chiltern Hills, this 16th century country pub boasts plenty of original features including wooden beams and Inglenook fireplace. The property features a bar and dining room, well equipped to provide strong food and drink offerings, and the site enjoys a large trade garden with additional seating, which backs on to a woodland area.

After five years of being closed, the pub is now ready to be taken on by a new owner who can invest in the property and breathe new life into the business before reopening. Previously renowned for its high quality menu and real ales, The Lamb is well-known in the community and is well placed to become a local favourite once again, as the large carpark and grounds make the property suitable for an operator to transform the site. 

With a rich, local dining scene, which includes Anthony Worral Thompson’s pub The Greyhound in nearby Rotherfield Peppard, the area has a strong draw for visitors from nearby towns and tourists from further afield, with many attracted to Henley-on-Thames for its boating scene and the famous annual regatta. 

The current owner has made several improvements to the site but is now ready to move on, making way for a new investor or operator to reimagine the property.

Tim Widdows, Business Agent at Christie & Co’s Reading office comments, “The Lamb at Satwell is very well known in the area and is a property that many of the local residents would like to see reopened. The property has great potential for a new operator to extend the pub to increase covers, subject to planning permission, and the beautiful grounds perfectly lend themselves to outside events. The ample parking and grounds are what make the property so unique in the area and one a new owner could really take advantage of.”

Christie & Co is seeking £950,000 for the freehold interest of The Lamb at Satwell.
