Could you run this pub in Danbury?

Are you looking to run a popular and classic village community pub? If so, the Bell could be the one for you!

The savvy operator will take advantage of the spacious beer garden for guests to while away the summer hours with room for 50 covers. You’ll need catering experience, as the opportunity here sits around delivering delicious food to affluent Danbury guests.

The Bell is a one-bar operation with cosy booths in the main trading area and the kitchen on the same floor. We have invested in the pub recently. Next, we will relay the car park and add a sheltered heated seating area for thirty covers in the beer garden.

About the local area

The village is at the centre of extensive areas of woodland and heath owned by the National Trust and other conservation organisations. Danbury Common, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, also lies south of the village centre. You’ll attract guests to these sites and gain footfall from people travelling to Chelmsford.

Ideal operator/s

We’re looking for a characterful community operator with a proven track record of delivering high-quality food and drink.


The publican accommodation will consist of a 1 bed studio flat and a kitchenette area .
