Wellesley Arms Sutton Benger


Wellesley Arms

10 High Street, Sutton Benger, Chippenham SN15 4RD

The Wellesley Arms is in the village of Sutton Benger, just 5 miles from the bustling historic market town of Chippenhan in Wiltshire and a short distance from the M4 motorway.  This stunning stone building is a very popular destination for diners and drinkers alike. We are also proposing a refurbishment scheme to include letting accommodation in the existing skittle alley.


Trading Potential

The Wellesley Arms is a stunning stone building with all the characteristics of the traditional pub, wood floors, open fires and log burners.

We are proposing to convert the existing skittle alley into 4 en-suite letting rooms, which we believe will complement the already solid business.  This site also benefits from a large trade garden with children’s play area which can be utilised for outside functions.


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.
