Craven Arms



Enborne, Nr Newbury Berkshire RG20 0HG

The Craven Arms sits in the picturesque village of Enborne which is just outside the vibrant town of Newbury in the Royal county of Berkshire.  This classic 17th Century pub is full of character will low beamed ceilings, wood burning stoves with three nicely divided dining rooms, a separate pool / games room that can also double as a function room.

The site sits in approx. 1 acre of ground and is immaculately kept.


Trading Potential

The Craven Arms is only a few miles from Newbury town centre and easily accessible from Hungerford and Andover.  The current Business Partners have been here for over 10 years and have built up an enviable reputation for standards and service.  Boasting probably the largest beer garden in the area which has a play area, BBQ space and small football pitch makes this a great place to meet.  Continued emphasis on quality food and standards will maintain this solid business


New Business Partner Profile

Ideally the new Business Partners here will have the catering skills to develop on an already solid business, a passion for maintaining and delivering quality cask ales with excellent customer service, with the ability to interact and become a key factor within a rural community by making the pub the hub of the village.
