Could you run this South Cerney pub?

Are you a talented Publican and history enthusiast looking for a new challenge?

Pub and location

Take the reins of the charming and historic Royal Oak, a 300-year-old Grade II listed property on the main road through the idyllic village of South Cerney in Gloucestershire. Step inside and be captivated by the low ceilings and beams, perfectly preserved to reflect the pub’s age and style where tradition meets the contemporary.

The pub boasts a spacious and well-appointed trade kitchen, ready to unleash your culinary creativity. You’ll serve your delectable dishes to the local community and destination diners. With three distinct areas including a private dining/function room, you can cater for up to 70 covers.

Outside you’ll experience the perfect expanse for al fresco dining, summer events, and merriment under the stars. With a direct route to the pub garden, your guests can seamlessly transition from the vibrant pub atmosphere to the tranquillity of the outdoors.

But it’s not just the pub that makes this opportunity extraordinary. Nestled next to the breath-taking lakes of the South Cotswolds, South Cerney is a haven for locals and tourists alike. With a population of nearly 4,000 residents and a surge in numbers during the summer months and school holidays, your establishment will be at the heart of a thriving community. The large De Vere hotel and numerous holiday homes beyond the village create a constant stream of potential customers.

Ideal Publican

We’re seeking a talented Publican who will attract destination diners while captivating the local community. With its current emphasis on upmarket dining, there’s a golden opportunity to tap into the core drinks market. We want someone who can create an all-encompassing experience. You’ll entice customers to visit the Royal Oak on any day or night of the week.

Private accommodation

There are three private bedrooms. Experience the privilege of calling this remarkable establishment your home, where the ambience of the pub spills seamlessly into your personal space.

So, seize this once-in-a-lifetime chance to become part of history, revive a cherished pub, and immerse yourself in a community brimming with opportunity. Are you ready to make the Royal Oak your own?
