Traditional Hampshire pub looking for new owner

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has brought to the market The Hogget, a high quality, rural pub and restaurant on the outskirts of the affluent village of Hook in Hampshire.

Occupying a prominent corner roadside position, the food led destination pub boasts an open plan 65 cover restaurant, main bar area for 14 covers, fully equipped commercial kitchen, and utility room. The property also provides spacious owners’ accommodation on the first floor, comprising three double bedrooms, two single bedrooms, living room, kitchen, utility room and bathroom.

Externally, the site benefits from a well-kept trade patio area with bench seating to accommodate for approximately 50 covers and a large car park for up to 40 vehicles. 

Having been owned and operated by husband and wife team, Tom and Laura Faulkner, for the past 10 years, The Hogget has undergone significant refurbishment and enjoys an enviable reputation for its food offering, benefitting from a high turnover. 

Richard Wood, Senior Business Agent at Christie & Co is handling the sale and comments, “The Hogget presents a fabulous opportunity to acquire a highly profitable village pub in an affluent location with a strong local following and would appeal to a hands on, experienced owner operator who could expand the current opening hours in order to drive sales and increase profitability.” 

Christie & Co is seeking an asking price of £160,000 for the leasehold interest.
