Sold Prior

A handsome and extensive public house located in the heart of this popular village about four miles from Taunton. The property offers the usual range of facilities including public bar, seating and dining areas that provide around 50 covers that can increase to 90 or so by incorporation of the function suite which also has its own bar. Adjoining is a skittle alley which can provide about 40 more covers and there is extensive owner/manager/staff accommodation along with a large car park, the whole extending to circa 0.12 hectares (0.31 acres).

The property is likely to appeal to those who would wish to continue with the current use, although some will take the view that some form of conversion or new-build residential development might be possible, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
