Could you run this Salisbury pub?
Are you a community duo or single operator with a strong reputation for good food and natural hosting skills, looking to run a popular pub in Salisbury? Need a new challenge at the helm of a pub with bags of potential? The Horse and Groom could be the one for you.
This pub is the ideal business opportunity for a captivating host and catering duo. We need operators who have the vision and know-how to put this pub in the heart of the local community.
Upon entering the pub, you will see the bar servery ahead of you with trading areas on either side. The trading area to the right provides the optimum dining experience, and to the left caters for those interested in drinking and bar sports. The open-plan space affords opportune flexibility for larger parties or sporting events.
The ideal operator will have the creativity to capitalise on the trading space we refurbished within the last four years with an ample sized beer garden. The pub is a great meeting place for people visiting Salisbury and those seeking an after-work drink.
You will discover the Horse and Groom pub on Wilton Road, the main road into Salisbury, less than one mile from Salisbury city centre.
Salisbury is a medieval cathedral city in the southern English county of Wiltshire. It’s nine miles south of the iconic prehistoric stone circle at Stonehenge, which stands on the grassland of Salisbury Plain.
The city’s ornate 13th-century cathedral has a 123m spire, a working 14th-century clock, and an original copy of the Magna Carta (the Great Charter).
Visitors have been drawn to this city for centuries, as it is steeped in history and boasts stunning architecture. Footfall will not be an issue with this pub; the savvy operator will take advantage of the business potential of its popular location.
Ideally, a duo or single operator would operate this pub with a creative caterer managing the classic menu and the other partner being a gregarious host best able to captivate guests. You will both need to understand the local community and host team sports events.
This pub has four private bedrooms and a lounge.
