A VILLAGE pub that dates back to the 1890s has been put up for sale.
The Elephant & Castle, which features oak flooring, wooden beams, tub chairs and multi-fuel burners, is still an integral part of the local community and sponsors a football team.
The sale is being masterminded by specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co.
The buildings includes two bars with a dining area for 65, a laundry room/staff lounge area, staff kitchenette, fully equipped commercial kitchen, storage room, cellar and ladies and gentlemen’s toilets. The first floor offers sizeable three bedroom owners’ accommodation which could be converted to letting rooms, subject to planning.
The beer garden also seats 65, while another 25 can be accommodated at the front of the pub and children can enjoy a play area.
Mark Loveday of Christie & Co’s Reading Office is handling the sale and said: “The Elephant & Castle offers a fabulous opportunity to acquire a well established business in an excellent location and would appeal to a first-time entrant to the market or equally, a multiple operator looking to add to their portfolio.”
Christie & Co is seeking £139,950 for the leasehold with a current annual rent of £46,000.
