Picturesque Hertfordshire Pub Comes to Market

August 3, 2011

Davis Coffer Lyons’ Pub Team has been instructed to sell the freehold of The Cabinet, a historic Grade II listed public house in the picturesque village of Reed in Hertfordshire.

DCL is inviting offers in excess of £495,000 for the 16th Century property, which also includes private two-double bedroom accommodation and attractive grounds. The business is currently closed to trade although previously operated as a destination dining pub and function venue.

The two storey detached property is located in the destination venue close to Royston, on Reed’s High Street which is a residential location. In addition to the two bars, the pub includes a restaurant to side with part exposed beamed ceiling and space for circa 52 covers, as well as a marquee area, rear patio seating, and car parking for 25 vehicles. The total gross internal area including storage is approximately 2,500sqft.

Commenting on the instruction, Chris Bickle, Davis Coffer Lyons, said, “The Cabinet is a charming destination freehouse that has a great deal of potential. There is not only scope to develop the historic wet and food trade but also the wedding and function business, subject to relevant licenses that were in place. This may appeal to an owner-operator wanting to create a real destination pub-restaurant at this property, given the beautiful setting, charming interior and ample space to meet a host of customer requirements.”

Davis Coffer Lyons is instructed alongside joint agents Mullocks Wells.
