|This pub is available on a Tenancy At Will agreement (TAW). A TAW agreement is a short-term licence which can be terminated at short notice. You are taking on a temporary agreement only and as such some key elements of the codes of practice and the Landlord and Tenant Act will not apply. TAWs cannot be assigned nor can sub-letting take place.
Even though this may only be a tenancy at will, you will need some form of capital behind you for cash flow and early expenses. The actual amount of capital required for ingoings and the rent will be discussed with the Operations Manager.
Please be aware that for a TAW application, you will need an up-to-date Personal Licence to progress.

The Cask Marque accredited Salmon Inn is an attractive stone-built community mainstream pub in the quaint Northumberland village of East Ord. It has a great reputation for well-looked-after cask ales and for good, home-cooked food, which needs to be an integral part of the offer moving forwards. The Salmon benefits from a good local trade, while also being a hot spot for tourists in spring and summer. The fantastic beer garden is a key draw.
The Salmon benefited from investment just over 2 years ago and has a smart yet traditional look throughout its open plan trading space. The prominent bar leads onto a cosy snug area next to an open fire, which many walkers, cyclists and other visitors to the area really appreciate. There’s also a small dining area with 26 covers during busy dining services. Outside, there’s a rear patio area and a large beer garden that’s big enough to install a marquee for large local summer functions. The pub provides parking for 12 cars, a smoking solution and free WiFi.
The domestic accommodation consists of two bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
East Ord is a village about 2 miles south-west of Berwick-upon-Tweed, which itself lies about halfway between Newcastle upon Tyne and Edinburgh. Berwick is a popular destination for tourists and many head for the Manor House and grounds, which are now part of Ord House Country Park, a quiet landscaped caravan park that’s just a few minutes’ walk from the pub.
Idea for someone who can embrace the local community and give them a real reason to come to the pub, to both eat and drink. Experience of a good quality food offer and working in kitchens would be beneficial.
