Rare opportunity to buy quaint Dorset pub
Ever dreamed of running your own business? Christie & Co is seeking an asking price of £650,000 for the freehold interest of Drusilla’s Inn, a quaint country pub near Horton.
The business is two-fold – a pub for locals and tourists, plus a B&b renting out rooms over the pub. It also boasts three acres of land plus two further guest flats, named ‘Dorset Down’ and ‘Horn and Poll’, in the grounds.
This is a must-buy for foodies, as the 90-cover restaurant poses a fair challenge. There is also more room for dining in the Round Restaurant, which seats 40. In summer, another 100 can sit outside. The car park can hold 70 vehicles so expect to serve a lot of Sunday roasts.
You are also buying your own two-bed flat on the first floor. Original features include exposed brick and beams and inglenook fireplaces
Current owner Phillip Prowse said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed te past five years at Drusilla’s but feel the time is right to move on. We are very fortunate to have significant repeat business in our restaurant, which sources locally grown produce, and there is great potential to grow the business further, especially on the accommodation front, as our shepherd’s huts are in high demand.”
Richard Wood, Senior Business Agent at Christie & Co’s Winchester office handled the sale. He saidL “Drusilla’s Inn presents a fabulous opportunity to acquire a lovely village pub in a picturesque location with wonderful views. It is ideally suited for a hands-on owner operator who can see the business’ potential and has the passion and energy to take the pub to the next level.”
