Could you run this pub?
The Red Cow, Whitchurch is a much-loved traditional drinks led community pub which is known for its Cask Ales and is a known drinking spot for the local area. It’s an easy to manage trading space with a central bar and is popular within the community, with local darts and pool teams alongside being known for entertainment.
We are planning a full refurbishment to this lovely pub which will enhance its vibrant and welcoming atmosphere modernising it whilst remaining sympathetic to its traditional features.
The pub has an open plan trading space with a central bar. This is a great pub to operate as all areas of the pub can be monitored from the bar. There is a natural zoning of games area, seated drinking, a great outdoor space which also offers a smoking solution, and the pub has live televised sports and WIFI.
We are planning a full redecoration throughout. This will bring the pub into modernity giving it a fresh look and feel, whilst retaining the features of a traditional public house. We are excited to propel this pub back to where it belongs – the best place to drink for all in Whitchurch. The refurbishment will be transformational and make this an attractive proposition enhancing its appeal to a much wider customer base.
The private accommodation includes two bedrooms, a open plan kitchen and living area.
