Strode Arms Cranmore


Strode Arms

Cranmore, Shepton Mallet, BA4 4QJ

The Strode Arms is the classic British 18th century stone built pub in the centre of Cranmore, opposite the duck pond.   This idyllic village is handily situated between Frome and Shepton Mallet in the beautiful Somerset countryside.

The Strode Arms is very popular with locals and visitors to the area and especially the close by East Somerset steam railway.  The quintessential feel to this pub, with its flag stone floors, inglenook fireplace and log burning stoves, makes it a great place to meet up and enjoy lunch or dinner any day of the week.



This fantastically situated village pub sits in the centre of the village of Cranmore directly opposite the duck pond and has all the hallmarks of a great traditional British pub.  Segmented as “Great Pub Great Food” within our estate the Strode Arms can comfortably seat 70 throughout the pub and has a trade kitchen that can easily cater for these numbers.  The business we believe is currently trading at 60% - 40% in favour of food and is well patronised, however we feel that with a menu change and increased use of social media to market the business a new BP could develop an already solid trade.

New Business Partner Profile

The new business partners here will ideally have great communication skills within a village environment and have the persona to become a key part of the community.  This site would suit operators with experience in the trade of running a site that caters for locals and visitors to the area, with the drive and enthusiasm to build on an already solid business.
