Could you run this pub in Shefford, Bedfordshire?

This wet-led community pub is a popular place to enjoy meeting friends, a game of pool, and weekend entertainment. It occupies a prime spot on the high street, attracting plenty of footfall.

There is scope to introduce a home-cooked food offer, especially at peak trading times, which would help to diversify the business. The ideal vision would be to create a great community wet-led local hosting teams, quizzes, enhanced weekend entertainment, and a delicious Sunday roast.

The Cornerstone enjoys a prominent corner spot at the end of the high street. It’s well-positioned to attract passing trade all week round.

Here you’ll discover a fresh open plan trading operation, a currently underutilised catering kitchen that can provide up to forty covers.

The pub offers a dedicated pool table and TV viewing area with free Wi-Fi. There’s a small patio area with a smoking solution, plus parking spaces for fifteen cars.

Ideal operator/s

We’re looking for a community-focused operator or a duo. You’ll love local and pub teams, live sports, reintroducing food and introducing lively weekend events.


There are three private bedrooms, a private kitchen, and a lounge.
