Christie & Co is seeking a new tenant for The Queens Head, a closed village pub and restaurant in the sought-after village of Great Whittington, Northumberland.
Prior to closing, this attractive stone-built property was a prominent village feature in Great Whittington, which sits on the north side of the Tyne Valley, around seven miles north east of Hexham.
The business is well-positioned to capture visitors to the Northumberland area, with the Matfen Hall Golf & Spa Hotel just a short drive away.
The pub serves up a traditional bar area featuring an open fireplace and beamed ceiling, along with a games/lounge area, and 40-cover restaurant. The pub overlooks a large lawned beer garden and a car park with space for 12 cars.
The property also features a three-bed owners accommodation, including a private garden.
The current landlord is seeking an experienced and enthusiastic operator to take on a new free-of-tie lease and reopen the business, which has been sorely missed by the local community. They are looking to enter into a sustainable, long term relationship and wish to see the business prosper.
Subject to the necessary planning consents and agreeing terms, the landlord is open to extending the premises to suit the needs and requirements of the successful tenant operator, offering great development potential.
David Cash, Associate Director in Christie & Co’s Hospitality team is handling the letting, commented, “Very rarely do opportunities such as this come to market. Our client is really excited by the prospect of finding a committed operator who shares their vision for The Queens Head.
'The pub has a lot to offer in its current format, but with plans to extend the restaurant and create additional letting bedrooms, The Queens Head has potential to become a real destination. Local residents are incredibly keen to have a pub in the village again.
'We expect interest from owner-operators as well as regional multi-site operators looking to grow their portfolio.”
