Could you run this pub?

Are you an experienced food operator looking for a picturesque pub to run overlooking the River Tees? The Otter and Fish could be the pub for you.

Pub and location

You’ll find this beautiful pub in the picturesque village of Hurworth, three miles from Darlington, close to the North Yorkshire border. There’s plenty of potential to maximise the business with over one hundred covers that currently serve as a restaurant. The pub is in excellent condition, with a large bar and a small seating area outside. We’re looking for a food enthusiast who’ll seize the opportunity to run a good-sized kitchen.

You’ll be taking the reins of a pub with a sterling reputation. Family-run since 2006, the venture will always pride itself on delicious, home-cooked food and five-star service. Guests love traditional bar meals and a full a la carte menu, but you’ll have plenty of opportunities to sprinkle your culinary magic on the menu. You’ll prepare your locally sourced homemade food on the premises, giving what you do that bespoke and individualised touch.

Hurworth is a beautiful village in the borough of Darlington, within the boundaries of County Durham. You can find it south of Darlington on the River Tees, close to its meeting point with the River Skerne. The savvy Publican will capitalise on footfall from the other twenty villages around the immediate area that all form part of the same parish, notably Low Coniscliffe, Walworth Gate, Croft On Tees and Stapleton.

Ideal operator

You must be a food operator, preferably with chef experience. You’ll be a talented entrepreneur who understands the mid-market food offer. You do not have to be local.

We’re looking for a Publican with excellent attention to detail and a love of people. You’ll consistently achieve five-star customer reviews, ensuring that you provide the right drinks range for your guests and will be a stickler for compliance. You’ll guarantee healthy social media engagement, ensuring you bring your business to life online, driving engagement and footfall.

Private accommodation

This exciting business provides three private bedrooms, a kitchen, and a lounge.
