Dog & Gun

Main Street, Keyham, LE7 9JQ

About this opportunity

The Dog & Gun is a quintessential pub set in the picturesque village of Keyham in rural Leicestershire and has been part of the Everards estate since 1938!

Current business owners Paige and Stuart have created a strong business here with a great reputation locally! The couple are leaving the pub to seek new adventures and look forward to leaving their pub in the hands of someone who will continue to provide the village and wider villages a fantastic place to gather.

Paige has been working at the pub for over 14 years, starting as a Bar Person , then into the kitchen as a chef and finally on to taking it as her own with her father in 2012. In 2014 Paige met her now fiancé Stuart and since then they have ran the pub together.

The pub sits on main street, the only way in and out of the village with approximately 40 houses and lots of farmland surrounding it. The village of Scraptoft has recently seen the addition on new housing with plans for more within 2 miles of the pub which will bring more potential custom, and the pub itself is only 5 miles from the vibrant city of Leicester!

Paige and Stuart have kept the pub immaculate in their time here and have loved every minute.The private accommodation is suitable for a family, with three large bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, and bathroom.

The pub sees visitors from far and wide visit, especially for the live music events. It attracts lots of walkers and ramblers being surrounded by countryside, as well as cyclists and others that love to visit a true English country pub. The pub also supports two local petanque teams that play from the pubs own petanque court once a week.

So, if you are looking for your next business venture and would like a move to the country to live the rural lifestyle in a beautiful pub with a well-established clientele then look no further. The Dog & Gun has it all, with plenty of room to grow the business further and put your own stamp on it!
