Could you run this pub?
The King Alfred, in Street, is a pub with letting rooms, which is named after one of England’s well-known kings who held many links with Somerset. It’s a welcoming pub that has a reputation locally for its freshly prepared food, fine wines, cask ales and for its three guest rooms for customers to stay and explore the local area and wider Somerset. It is a really welcoming local pub but is also close by the town centre circuit, so there is potential to tap into this audience.
The main bar area is to the front elevation with the restaurant (with room for 90 covers) set towards the rear. The pub also offers a function room, beer garden and parking for 20 cars. The pub offers three letting rooms and there is also WIFI throughout.
The private accommodation includes two bedrooms, a private kitchen and lounge
