Seize the opportunity to run a thriving pub with a picturesque Canal side location in the heart of a popular area in Milton Keynes.

The pub and location

The Red Lion provides an excellent business opportunity. That’s because it already has a loyal following of locals, families, and MK Dons fans. Its established reputation will ensure a steady stream of customers. Guests also love the pub for its live music, quizzes, and sports events on BT.

The savvy operator will excel running a single bar operation, with a spacious main lounge area and a smaller section providing seating for approximately 32 guests. Currently offering BT Sports, live entertainment, and home-cooked food, the Red Lion boasts a covered BBQ/Pizza Shack and a charming pergola in its picturesque garden. With good weather, there is tremendous potential to make this garden the go-to destination for canal users, passers-by, and locals. Additionally, the pub provides a car park with 16 spaces.

Ideal Publican

With the pub’s enviable Canal side and community location, the potential for growth and success is limitless. The astute operator/s will capitalise on the pub’s position near MK Dons Stadium, only two miles from the main shopping centre. You’ll also maximise the opportunity visitors provide when stopping for refreshments because it is near Fenny Stratford train station. You’ll also attract walkers who enjoy the canal and lock.

We’re looking for publicans to build upon the pub’s impressive reputation. You’ll enhance the current food and drink offerings and create a captivating weekly line-up of activities. While local knowledge would be an advantage, it’s not essential.

Private accommodation

You’ll have three bedrooms, a private kitchen, and a comfortable lounge.
