The Union Inn, Stibb Cross, Torrington, North Devon, SOLD

Immaculate refurbished country village freehold pub is sold.

Just under three years ago The Union Inn at Stibb Cross, near Torrington in Devon, was closed and the village was without a pub. It was bought by a local family, refurbished and reopened. The business was re-established and is now well supported by the local community and surrounding villages. Because of an unexpected change in personal circumstances The Union Inn has recently been sold to Clare and Mathew Andrews through licensed property specialists Stonesmith of Exeter.

With family already in the area, Clare and Mathew have moved in with their daughter, having been attracted to The Union Inn by its location and the excellent condition of the property. They plan some minor alterations in the future, including refreshing the menu with traditional pub fare using local produce cooked fresh to order and they are very keen to support local suppliers and to feature fresh seasonal produce.

Clare and Mathew have been thrilled by the welcome they have received from the community and are looking to put on as much as they can in the way of entertainment and events etc. Karaoke, quiz and bingo nights are in place along with live music events. They are also planning a race night soon and a mini beer festival in July, with a band and hog roast.

The Union Inn is a detached two storey property situated in the centre of Stibb Cross, Torrington, on a sizable corner plot and in a great position to capitalise on passing trade. It is 6 miles from Great Torrington, 8 miles from Bideford and 9 miles from Holsworthy.

The property briefly provides a main bar with 50 covers, dining area for 8, pool room with 14 covers, beer cellar, stock room, office and commercial catering kitchen. The private accommodation has 4 bedrooms, a family bathroom, lounge and kitchen/diner. Outside there is a small forecourt to the front with customer seating and to the rear an enclosed beer garden for 50 customers, with a patio area, BBQ, and smoking shelter. The property also has a car park with spaces for 25 plus vehicles.

A freehold business Stonesmith sold The Union Inn off a guide price of £395,000.
