The new Business Partners will ideally be owner operators with good catering skills and the ability to deliver good quality food. They should have a passion to keep and dispense our quality cask ales to the highest standard. Preferably, they would express an interest in the local community and be willing to become a key member of the village, including engaging with local events and making the “Pub the Hub”.
Located in the picturesque village of Alvescot, an affluent area of the Oxfordshire countryside. This attractive public house has all the qualities that you expect from a traditional village pub. The pub flows around a central bar area with inviting dining spaces, providing ample room for groups of various sizes.
