Could you run this Somerton pub?

Are you looking for a pub steeped in history? Well, this could be the one. The Unicorn Hotel is reportedly over 350 years old and one of the most architecturally interesting locally.

The Unicorn Hotel is about using every aspect of the business that this pub provides.  It has everything,  a commercial kitchen, letting rooms, separate trading areas, function room, terraced outside area and even car parking.   You couldn’t want for more, this pub has everything

The pub and location

It’s a gem of a business, with the bar showcasing a magnificent Inglenook fireplace with small nooks off the main area. You’ll also discover a delightful lounge and restaurant area and a spacious courtyard garden.

Somerton lies in the rural heart of Somerset. The history of it once being the County Town (until this accolade was given to nearby Taunton) is prevalent in the history of fine architecture seen within the town. It’s a desirable place to live and a hotspot for tourism.

There is a unified sense of community pride here and it is evident to see why. Plenty of local groups and organisations to work with, alongside a number of annual summer events.

The ideal operator

With four letting rooms and a central high street location, you will need to be relentless in your attention to detail, possessing unbounded energy. An inspirational leader of your team, you’ll impart your well-crafted knowledge on how to create an exceptional experience for every guest.

This is a pub that could grow with an exciting new publican, so whilst previous hospitality experience would be beneficial, this could be a suitable opportunity for a first time operator with a strong business background.

Private Accommodation

There is a 1 bedroom flat with private kitchen and bathroom.
