Could you run this pub?
The Squirrel is a beautiful Chilterns village pub that sits in the heart of Penn street. It’s nearby a cricket green and is a popular meeting point to gather for a drink on game days, with traditional picnic tables at the front and offers a lovely beer garden space, that is home to a children’s play area and plenty of seating for the warmer weather in the summer months.
It’s a hub for the local community but additionally has a wider appeal for the neighbouring areas of Holmers Green and Amersham, due to the enticing offers of traditional food and Cask Marque ales.
The trading space is L shaped, with a set dining area (40 covers) at one end and a more traditional pub space in the main part, there is also a kitchen. The pub offers outdoor Beer garden space, a smoking solution and WIFI.
We are looking to increase the car park space (currently 18 spaces) and to potentially convert some of the barn space into private living accommodation.
There is also an outside bar with a wood stove that is under consideration for becoming a straight function room which would increase covers but also be able to open up out into the garden.
The private accommodation includes bedrooms, a private kitchen and lounge.
