Could you run this pub in Mortimer Common?

Nestled on the outskirts of Reading, The Horse & Groom provides the perfect setting for guests to get together and have a great time. The traditional pub offers plenty for the whole family. It’s more than just a fleeting visit; it’s an experience!

The pub and location

You’ll find the Horse and Groom in Mortimer, on the roadside, directly opposite Mortimer Common, in the village centre. It’s an old, double-fronted detached pub with a side garden, a public car park opposite, and roadside parking.

It’s a community pub offering great food and drinks, events, and functions integral to village life. Guests love it for its honest pub classics – real pub grub bursting with flavour at excellent value. It’s also the best place to watch live sports in Mortimer Common because of its large HD TV screens.

The Horse & Groom is a one-room operation with a central bar, set into three definitive trading zones: a bar, food, and chill-out space with a relaxing log burner. The creative operator will ensure to maximise the potential of each independent zone.

Mortimer Common (referred to as Mortimer) is close to the towns of Reading and Basingstoke – in the county of Berkshire.

Ideal operator/s

We’re looking for a duo with front and back-of-house experience. The food offered is essential to this pub’s success.

Private accommodation

This excellent opportunity comes with spacious Publican accommodation: four bedrooms, a private kitchen, and a lounge.
