Fancy Running a Pub?
Dreaming of spending your evenings stood behind the bar, pouring pints and chatting to the locals? Then this could be your big opportunity – the Red Lion in Axford is up for sale for £399,000.
Some of the benefits of the 16th century inn has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with features like exposed beams and large, open Inglenook fireplace and cellars too. It’s described as (ahem) ‘ripe for renovation’. With some cash thrown at it, could make a splendid destination restaurant or gastro pub. Perhaps a ‘Pub Chain’ for owners of The Bell, Ramsbury Estates?
On the downside to return the beer garden to its former glory would require some clever landscaping as the current owners have asset striped the garden for development.
The Red Lion is registered as an asset of community value – should the community seek to buy it?
Marketed by Christie & Co in Bristol.
Post Update: SOLD! Rumoured to become an Italian Restaurant!
