Could you run this Lewes pub?

Take the reins of a traditional British village pub, serving a range of drinks including real ales, lagers, wines, and spirits. This pub is also popular with locals and there is scope for you to develop a brand new food offer.

The Fountain Inn is popular with guests, receiving a four out of five-star rating on Trip Advisor. You’ll also capitalise on the picturesque seating area to people-watch or play outdoor chess.

The pub and location

The Fountain Inn lies in Plumpton Green, Lewes, with close transport links to Brighton and Haywards Heath, to name but a few, in the county of East Sussex.

The pub comprises a one-room trading area with a fantastic external drinking and dining area. The toilets are outside the main trading space, and internally you will discover features in good condition with covers for drinking and dining and some relaxing seating areas. The rear also has a small garden overlooking the local lush green fields.

The ideal operator

We’re looking for an operator seeking to become part of the local community in the village. An operator to drive the business forward, attracting destination travellers and visitors.

Private accommodation

Here you will find two bedrooms, a private kitchen, and a private lounge.
