The Dead Poets Inn

Chapel Street, Holbrook, DE56 0TQ

About this opportunity

Think of a village pub cherished by drinkers, traditional in character, warming and classic - you’re thinking of the Dead Poets Inn!

This pub is your true British pub, set in the beautiful village of Holbrook, full of snugs, fireplaces and a passion for real ale – it’s a drinker’s paradise!

Step into this pub and you feel the character and charm hit you instantly, with all the nooks and crannies including a ‘library snug’ full of old books and a cosy armchair created by current business owners Bill and Susan and their son Jason.

This trio have created an immaculately clean pub which attracts visitors from far and wide. Many come having heard the tales of this charming characterful pub, to sit and enjoy the space. The pub attracts lots of dog walkers who are welcome to bring their four-legged friends inside for a well-earned rest, as well as ramblers and cyclists who access the beautiful surrounding countryside routes.

As Bill and Susan are ready to retire, they leave behind a fantastic pub that has room for growth. There’s lots going on locally that can be tapped into, and beer festivals are always popular, so a passion for real ale and giving customers an authentic experience with lots of variety will go down well here.
