About this opportunity

The Griffin Inn is under offer as of 9th November 2022.

If you are interested in running a pub with us please call the team on 0116 201 4260.

The Griffin Inn is a multi-award-winning pub and wedding venue, sat in one of the most sought-after villages in Leicestershire. Surrounded by fields and countryside it’s no wonder this venue is booked up by brides a year in advance!

Current landlord Jon has been at the pub for 20 years, ran as a family pub with his son Jay, Jon is now ready to slow things down whilst Jay is wanting to explore a different path, outside of the pub life he has known since growing up here. What they have done here at the Griffin is truly remarkable and they leave a fantastic business opportunity and legacy behind them.

If you are from Leicestershire, you will definitely have visited this pub, known for its amazing food offer, its immaculate function room which is hired out for all sorts of occasions including weddings, wakes and its ever popular events, put on for its locals and those that come from further afield.

The pub manages to withhold that small, cosy village pub vibe, whilst every effort has been made to extend the socialising areas, especially outside to get the best from the stunning location.

The outside courtyard even has a full clear roof covering to keep the light in and the rain out, complete with atmospheric lighting to keep the party going all evening.

As well as the pub, the function room the covered courtyard and the secret garden, there is also a separate outbuilding that is ready to be whatever you want it to be! It has previously been home to a deli and has even had cooking classes held within.

This is an amazing opportunity to run one of Leicestershire’s finest pubs and would suit an experienced couple, family or multi-operator – this is a big site with many elements. It is well used and well-loved and needs someone who can come in and run and grow this business and continue to serve its community as Jon and Jay have for the last 20 years.

We anticipate lots of questions and interest around this pub, if you would like to get in touch, please give Louisa a call on 07885 268 740, who will be happy to chat through this fantastic opportunity.
