Raven Inn




The Raven sits in the pretty village of Poulshot in glorious countryside just 2.5 miles northeast of the market town of Devizes, and just a few miles from the famous Caen Hill locks on the Kennet and Avon canal.  This quintessential traditional village pub is very popular with locals and has gained an enviable reputation in the area for the quality and standard of the food and drink offer.

An attraction here is that our quality ales are served directly from the cask behind the bar. 

We are looking for a new Business Partner to take over here in early 2018.



The Raven sits in our “Great Pub Great Food” segment and has been operated by our Business Partners for the last eight years. This traditional pub has become the “Hub” of the local community and through its reputation for standards and service has proved a very popular destination for visitors.  Interaction with local shoots and the cricket club have helped with the success here and created a real community feel about this pub, with consistently high standards of the food and drink offer this site will continue to develop.  

New Business Partner Profile

The new Business Partners here will ideally need to have a solid background in catering and operate as “Chef Owner”.  The ability to engage in the village and become an integral part of the community would be advantageous.

This is a great opportunity for a couple to live in a lovely setting and develop an already strong business.
