Lutterworth Road, Whetstone, LE8 6NA

About this opportunity

As soon as you step inside this immaculate pub you feel the charm and welcome of a proper local with a modern twist. Its stylish framed bar, tasteful feature walls, chic lighting and bespoke furniture all set against its parquet flooring, wood panelling and open fireplaces oozes character.

The pub compromises of a lovely main bar area with sociable booth style window seating and two open fires and a snug area with custom made tables with a third open fire. A versatile separate sports room with pool table, darts and skittles (of which the pub has a local ladies’ team) is regularly used for private functions and buffets.

The Dog and Gun is a well-established pub business, popular with locals. It attracts customers who enjoy watching sport on the screens, catching up with friends over a pint or game of pool or taking part in the weekly quiz. The pub offers good hearty traditional pub food in a stylish and warm atmosphere.

In the summer the place is abuzz with families who are enticed by the very large garden, with children's play equipment, bouncy castle, tuck shop and plenty of seating to relax and enjoy the sunny days. It also hosts numerous family events including their popular Halloween kids party and summer fun days.

This thriving pub has been lovingly cared for by current business owner Lynne, who is sad to be leaving after 13 years behind the bar. We are looking for someone who has the same passion and drive to keep this proper pub as a local favourite.
