Search for owner to breathe fresh life back into 17th century pub

Posted: Monday 16 April 2018

A pub dating back to the 17th century in the North Devon village of Burrington has been put on the market for £260,000 for the freehold interest.

The Barnstaple Inn has been out of operation since the previous landlord passed away in March 2016.
Commercial property specialists Charles Darrow have been charged with the responsibility of finding new owners, who will restore the pub to its past glories.

The traditional thatched property has an open plan lounge and bar which can play host to more than 30 customers. With the benefit of a skittle alley/function room, which could be used as a restaurant, doors lead out to the paved patio with raised decking, (ideal for live music and beautiful sunsets) and on to the grassed area at the rear and side of the property. While the kitchen is in need of modernisation and the pub needs investment, this provides a great opportunity to re-develop.

With owners’ accommodation providing three large bedrooms, private lounge, dining room, shower, and bathroom, there is also additional space for further development. 

Under the previous ownership, the pub did not serve food but did benefit from both local and passing trade and has served the community for the last 16 years.

Charles Darrow Director Jon Clyne commented: “The Barnstaple Inn represents a cracking opportunity to purchase a freehold public house in what is a lovely village location in North Devon. 

“The business ceased trading due to a bereavement however, given the communities’ support, we are certain that in the right hands, with investment the property could be returned to its former glory.”
