Have you ever fancied running your own pub in Cornwall? It’s something of a dream occupation for many, and there are some great opportunities available right now.
St Austell Brewery is currently seeking tenants at four of its pubs across the county, including a watering hole on the island of St Mary’s.
The brewery’s estate spans the South West from the Isles of Scilly right up to Bristol, and includes a collection of nearly 180 pubs, hotels, and inns.
St Austell Brewery says: "By running a St Austell Brewery pub, you will be part of an award-winning family-owned regional brewer with a long-term outlook who holds traditional values.
"We positively invest in our pubs and in their people to uphold our belief in providing top quality beers, people and pubs."
This pub resides in the heart of Hugh Town. It goes without saying that taking the reins of this watering hole demands the embracing of island life.
The future tenants will join a community which thrives on busy seasonal trade, and a strong catering background is highlighted as a requirement.
The Bishop and Wolf Inn features a fully refurbished downstairs trade area and an upstairs restaurant which is currently used as a children’s soft play area. Outside hosts a terraced wall garden along with a two-bedroom flat and six staff bedrooms with en-suites.
The Swan Hotel is a townhouse situated in the centre of Wadebridge. St Austell Brewery notes that this property is perfect for experienced operators seeking to take on an already thriving business.
The pub is made up of a large catering kitchen, a recently refurbished bar and dining area, a function room with facilities for 80 people, an outside courtyard, and six letting rooms.
Private accommodation offers a lounge/kitchenette, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
This picturesque village pub lies to the centre of Sticker, along the outskirts of St Austell. The Hewas Inn is noted for having established a good reputation for traditional, home cooked food and well-kept beers.
The main bar area is arranged across three sections within an open plan design. There is dining throughout for approximately 45 covers, with a section that can be closed for private parties. The kitchen is stated as being fully equipped to service a busy pub, spacious, and well laid out.
The future tenants will benefit from private accommodation that comprises three bedrooms, a lounge, and bathroom.
