Could you run this Iwerne Minster pub?

Are you a talented hospitality operator enthusiastic about serving high-quality food? If so, the majestic Talbot, in Iwerne Minster, a village in Dorset bordering on the Blackmore Val, could be the one for you.

The Talbot is a large grade II listed two-storey detached property with a car park and trade gardens. The trade areas currently consist of the main bar area with a separate dining room and games room with upper floors providing six letting bedrooms. Major investment plans are to create an open plan trading area and redecorate the letting rooms. The six letting rooms include a self-contained family suite consisting of a double and a twin room and a rear patio garden.

Pub and location

The Talbot is a charming, dog-friendly pub and bed and breakfast, serving locally sourced food and drinks in the evening from a delightful restaurant. You’ll capitalise on the pub’s proximity to the English countryside of Dorset, attracting walkers from across the UK.

The Talbot is only a short drive from Salisbury, Poole, and Bournemouth, with sights such as the Old Wardour Castle or the Poole Mystery Treasure Trail. The pub sits in the middle of the pretty village of Iwerne Minster on the main A350 between Blandford and Shaftesbury in Dorset. Located in the beautiful Dorset countryside, this pub boasts award-winning food, quality drink and superior ensuite accommodation.

Ideal operator

You’ll have a real passion for old pubs and serving great beer, craft ale and quality food! Your infectious personality and excellent hosting style will ensure the Talbot is in the very heart of the local community.

The pub needs a great communicator. Someone who can bring the Talbot to life on social media. You’ll be a team motivator and empath, ensuring guests and staff love your pub.

Private accommodation

Here you will find a flat with one bedroom, lounge and a private kitchen.  In the attic there are two further bedrooms and a shower room.
