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 go 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 much as current business owners Pauline and Gary have over the past thirteen years.

It 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 relaxing with a cold drink in the beer garden. Inside you will find a large restaurant with a separate bar and drinking area.

There is a good-sized car park to cater for the customers that travel from far and wide, to enjoy the good quality food offer. The pub is also well supported by the 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 Cheney has four beautiful individually styled letting bedrooms; 2 double and 2 twin rooms all with en-suites, which provide the perfect base for exploring the local area and visiting local family and friends or for a special occasions.

It 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!

The Cheney would suit a couple with food experience and good front of house skills, who would like to be part of a lovely village community. This is a well-established business, but also has the opportunity to grow and needs someone with the vision to continue to attract people from far and wide.

The community

Gaddesby is a picturesque village about 5 miles from Melton and 8 miles from Leicester City Centre.

This charming, highly desirable small village is thought to date back to the 9th Century and is surrounded by some of the county's finest countryside, offering a feeling of rural seclusion.

In the village itself, you will find the pub, a church and a primary school and a regular bus service between Leicester and Melton. The village is also on the Leicestershire round - the 100 mile circular walk around the county.

Gaddesby Primary School has an outstanding ofsted report. Schooling for older children can be found in tnearby towns.

Every year, on the Saturday morning before Christmas the village holds the 'Gaddesby Gallop' a five and a quarter-mile cross country race that starts from the Cheney Arms and ends up at the pub too!
