The Cheney Arms

Rearsby Lane, Gaddesby, LE7 4XE

About this opportunity

The Cheney Arms is one of those special pubs that doesn't come up very often....

It looks beautiful, is situated in a beautiful village in rural Leicestershire and has the addition of four beautiful letting rooms.

The pub is well used, well supported and well known for being a great place to come if you are looking for quality food and drink in a stunning setting. This is a solid business looking for someone to come and love it just as Pauline and Gary have over the past thirteen years.

The pub itself has a large restaurant with a separate bar and drinking area which Pauline and Gary have maintained over the years to a very high standard. The pub sits on the corner of Rearsby Lane and Main Street, in the village of Gaddesby with picturesque views of rolling countryside to take in whilst your customers sit and have drinks with friends in the beer garden.

There is a good sized car park to cater for customers that travel from far and wide, which they do as this pub has really good reputation for a quality food offer. The pub is also very well supported by its locals and the bar is busy and alive with chatter from when the farmers finish late afternoon into the evening when people return from their 9-5's.

The accommodation at this pub would suit a family or couple, with three double bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen and bathroom - it's a wonderful place to live!

This pub offers more than just a great pub opportunity, it also has 4 letting bedrooms, 2 double and 2 twin rooms all with en-suites, which are let throughout the year and for which Pauline currently offers a bed and breakfast service.

The pub also has a fantastic commercial kitchen that any chef would be proud to cook in. The pie nights are ridiculously busy with over 100 pies flying out on a Wednesday evening!

If you have ever wanted a rural pub with a fantastic village that you can truly be a part of then this is the pub for you! Pauline, Gary and their team have a great pub here and will be sad to see it go.
