About this opportunity

Looking to take on a well-established pub business and become the centre of your community? Ready to make friends for life in the thriving Barrow Upon Soar area of Leicestershire and bring your full personality to this great pub?

Then you need to give us a call, as the Soar Bridge Inn could be for you.

With the right person in place, we will look to refresh the pub externals bringing the look and feel of the pub in line with your vision.

Sitting in the beautiful village of Barrow Upon Soar, is the Soar Bridge Inn, a well-presented pub with a traditional offering and a big warm and friendly welcome.

It attracts everyone, from families enjoying the garden and a delicious hearty meal to friends catching up and putting the world to rights over a good pint and even those passing by or taking walks along the canal who pop in to rest their weary feet and refuel.

Step inside and you will find a welcoming bar with a separate dining area and a brilliant function room that doubles as a skittle alley.

The village has a strong sense of community, and the pub is well-used and well-supported. Barrow is renowned for its waterways and the pub sits just off bridge 28 of the River Soar. The pub has lots of groups using it, and the pub supports local water events like the annual Easter paddle.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone to build on this already well-established business, which still has room to grow and make their own.

Key highlights:

  • Strong sense of community in a sought-after village
  • Opportunity to grow the food offer
  • Play area in the garden
  • Good schools in the area
  • Planned investment
  • All year round, canal side location with an existing strong winter trade

It would suit someone who wants to be part of the community with a vision for an enticing food offer and a calendar of events bringing family and friends together from the local community and surrounding villages.

Barrow-upon-Soar is a large village in Leicestershire and is pleasantly situated on the east side of the River Soar, and on both sides of the Midland Railway.

The village is 3 miles S.E. of Loughborough, and 9 miles north of Leicester and is known for a plesiosaur that was excavated here in 1851. The specimen of Atychodracon megacephalus, found in a lime pit outside the village, was nicknamed the "Barrow Kipper".

At the centre of the village is a roundabout with a sign depicting its skeleton. The skeleton is now on display at the Leicester Museum & Art Gallery, with a full-size replica at Charnwood Museum in Loughborough.

Barrow upon Soar is a popular bustling village with a full range of shops and local amenities close to open countryside, yet within commuting distance of Loughborough and Leicester via the train station.

There are fantastic schools within the catchment area together with a range of interesting independent shops, tearooms, six public houses and accommodation.

There is a superb selection of local groups and societies and Barrow has managed to retain the community at the heart of village life.

Barrow upon Soar even has its own railways station, located on the Midland Main Line between Leicester and Loughborough, 108 miles north of London St Pancras.
