The Balfour Arms is a large, detached property with parking to the front and a picturesque rear garden incorporating an outside bar. Here you’ll discover a children’s play space and a spacious lawn and terrace. It’s a rare purpose-built pub by Devon standards oozing character. We created three stylish en-suite guest rooms in 2020, which guests love.

You’ll find the Balfour Arms situated on one of the main artillery roads into the Georgian seaside town of Sidmouth. Locals love it, as do families staying locally in one of the many campsites in the surrounding countryside during the summer. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to grow sales and attract new guests.

The pub and location

Put yourself right at the heart of this welcoming community and become the new protagonist in the next successful chapter of the pub’s history.

You’ll look after three superb letting rooms and enjoy a good-sized private, two-bedroom accommodation with a living room and kitchen. You’ll love this pub if you’re into local walks, cycling and the beach.

Guests enjoy a double-sided log fire nestling between the side of the bar the regulars love and the lounge bar proving the setting for some hearty winter cheer.

Making the most of the business means looking to drive activity throughout the rambling trade area and gardens. The savvy operator will host family days, local charity events and captivating entertainment sessions. You’ll create a buzz and reward the local community at the heart of everything you do.

The ideal operator/s

We’re looking for an individual or duo possessing an equally monumental and gregarious personality.

You’ll have the vision to take calculated risks as the facilities are amenable to you doing things differently. You’ll satiate the diverse needs of the community.

We’re looking for an operator/s with impeccable standards. You’ll have a successful track record of managing a team and achieving impressive results through effective delegation. You’ll be a great mentor for your team whether they work at the front or back of house. Communication with your customers will also be essential when giving them what they want from their local. You’ll also advertise pub events on social media.
