George Inn, St. Briavels


George Inn 

St.Briavels, Lydney, Glos GL15 6TA


The George Inn is a quintessential Village Pub and Inn nestled in the pretty village of St. Briavels in the Royal Forest of Dean. Flanked by the 12th Century castle reputed to be the most haunted in the country, St Briavels also has a primary school, church and weekly Farmers market.

The George has the benefit of 3 letting rooms which can be lucrative income stream from the many visitors to the area. 




Trading Potential

The George Inn is ideally located in the pretty village of St. Briavels and is the hub of the community.  With low beamed ceilings and wood burning stoves the pub really gives a warm ambience.  Benefitting from 3 En suite letting rooms and dining covers for circa 65 there is a potential here to build on an already solid business by extending trading hours and marketing the letting rooms.  We believe that the Business current operates with a 50 / 50 split of wet and food. 


New Business Partner Profile

The new Business Partners here will ideally be owner operators with one or both partners having a good level of catering experience to drive the food offer.  Knowledge of managing and marketing lettings rooms would be an advantage to utilize the great potential here.  A willingness to interact in a village and become key member of the community would be an attribute.
