Black Dog Chilmark

TENANTED PUB VACANCY

THE BLACK DOG

Chilmark, Salisbury, SP3 5AH

Chilmark is a pretty village set in the rolling Wiltshire countryside just 11 miles from the Cathedral city of Salisbury and the world heritage site of Stonehenge.  The Black Dog sits a couple of miles off of the busy A303 which is a great source of trade.  This beautiful brick and stone building can only be described as the “quintessential” great British pub serving excellent food and quality Wadworth cask ales.

 

Trading Potential

The Black Dog lies in the pretty village of Chilmark and sits in our “Great Pub Great Food” segment and operated by our current Business Partners and there team.  Located just off of the A303, the main artery to the West Country, the pub benefits from a passing trade derived from its excellent reputation and convenient location, a welcome break from a long journey.  Through the summer months it may benefit from extended food trading hours to enhance the already strong and solid business. 

The Black Dog is very popular with villagers, walkers and tourists and is offered in an immaculate condition.

 

New Business Partner Profile

The new Business Partners here would ideally be a couple with a good level of experience of a busy food led destination site, with one or both having the ability in the kitchen to service high volume lunches with a workable menu.  The evening food offering will need to reflect a more relaxed dining experience whilst retaining the “village” pub ambience.  Becoming a core part of the village and making the pub the heart of the community would be a great asset.
