Traditional Village Pub For Sale

Published: 06/12/2023 By Ryan Holmes

The sale of this traditional village pub offers an opportunity for an incoming landlord to take up the reins of a profitable business in the heart of Henstridge. 

Dating from the 1700s, the property has seen history as a pair of cottages, then a cider house, before becoming a licensed public house in the 1960s. The original part of the building offers a charming bar/restaurant and games room, whilst to the rear, the later addition of a skittle alley and function room comfortably provides seating for 50. Comfortable 3-bedroom owner’s accommodation is on the first floor.  


The pub has long been at the hub of village life, with many local functions and events held here. Currently, the business is primarily wet sales driven. However, there are opportunities to build on food and events. 

The Bird in Hand is for sale with a Guide of £460,000; for details, please click here or contact Ryan Holmes, Commercial Partner, on 01305 261008.
