Could you run this pub?
The Jolly Farmer is a cosy, traditional Cask Marque pub which sits in the small village of Cliddesden, which is just three miles from Basingstoke in Hampshire. This is the only pub in the village and is in a prominent position through the village on Farleigh road.
It’s a great opportunity to run a true village pub which offers exceptional home cooked pub food and fantastic cask ale, craft beers, wines and gins and offers a lovely beer garden space which is a welcoming feature in the warmer months throughout the year. The pub needs an operator who thrives in a village location, who can build great relationships and offer a warm welcome and great standards.
The pub offers easy to manage trading space with a bar area, with the pub filled with relaxed seating area suited for dining or drinks with friends (up to 40 covers). It’s a welcoming pub which is traditionally furnished to reflect its countryside location, with local bric a brac on walls. Cask ale and craft beer are important to offer and the pub has a catering kitchen, WiFi and parking for up to 20 cars.
The pub offers two bedrooms and a private lounge.
