George and Dragon Potterne


George and Dragon

High Street, Potterne Devizes SN10 5PY


The George and Dragon is located in a prominent position in the village of Potterne, on the main A360 between Devizes and Salisbury edging Salisbury plain.  This quintessential thatched pub benefits from a secluded and well-maintained garden, skittle alley, courtyard and two ensuite letting rooms. In the main bar an inglenook fireplace with log burning stove.  Local visitor attractions include Salisbury Cathedral, Old Sarum, Lacock and Bowood house and the Caen lock flight just a few miles away.

Trading Potential

The George and Dragon commands a great position in the village of Potterne, offering two well-appointed ensuite letting rooms that can be marketed to the many visitors to the area.  We are told that the site currently operates 60/40 split in favour of wet.  We believe the trade could be further developed from utilising the letting rooms and extending opening hours.

New Business Partner Profile

The new Business Partners here will ideally be experienced in the licensed trade with a knowledge of catering, however this is also a great opportunity for a couple with a good level of catering experience to embark on their first pub.  Ability to interact in a close knit village community would be an advantage.
