Traditional Oxfordshire pub looking for new owner
Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has brought to the market The Seven Stars, a rural pub and restaurant in the Oxfordshire village of Marsh Baldon, just south of the city of Oxford.
Lying adjacent to the large village green, the pub forms the centre of the local community and is well supported by locals and residents from neighbouring villages alike. Occupying a prominent position with ample outside space and parking, the food led destination pub comprises a bar and restaurant area with a welcoming feel for 36 covers, as well as the barn extension which caters for an additional 36 covers, and benefits from many of the original features including exposed wooden beams and vaulted ceilings. The property also provides spacious owner’s accommodation on the first floor, comprising four double bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom.
Externally, the site benefits from a well-kept trade garden with space for up to 150 guests, making it an ideal space for hosting events, and is very popular with guests in the summer months. There is also a large car park for up to 25 vehicles.
The property is owned by the local community and has been operated by the current tenant for the past six years. The Seven Stars has undergone significant refurbishment and enjoys an enviable reputation for its food offering, benefitting from a high turnover.
Tim Widdows, Business Agent at Christie & Co is handling the sale and comments, “The Seven Stars presents a fabulous opportunity to acquire a traditional village pub with a relaxed and contemporary feel. The pub would be an ideal asset for a hands on operator looking to drive the business forward and maximise on the affluent location and strong local following. This would be a great lifestyle business for someone looking to join village life and run a thriving business at the heart of the community.”
Christie & Co is seeking an asking price of £99,950 for the leasehold interest.
