The Oak Smannell


The Oak

Smannell Andover SN11 6JJ

The Oak, previously known as the British Oak dates from the 19th century

And is located in the pretty village of Smannell just 2 miles to the North East of Andover.  This pub is a popular destination for cyclists, walkers and residents of the new East Anton development a short walk away.  Set in a large plot, the Oak has trade gardens to the front and rear, large car park and a pony paddock.

The village benefits from a primary school which is next door and a church.


Trading Potential

The Oak sits in an enviable village location just a few miles from the centre of Andover and has all the traits of the typical classic English pub.  The open fires, oak floors and oak beamed conservatory / garden room give it a real rural feel.  The current Business Partners have manged this site for the last six years and in that time developed a good reputation for food and community interaction.  The emphasis on the quality of the food, drink and service with continued marketing and menu changes will help drive this business forward.


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.
