The Laughing Fox on Bridge Street, The Old Vale Bar on Main Street and The Pawn on Overton Street are said to offer “excellent opportunities” either as a group or stand-alone operations.

The Old Vale Bar, meanwhile, is described as a prominent ‘locals’ pub which is well-supported by the community. Also a free-of-tie wet-led operation, the pub is said to be in “excellent condition”; offers in the region of £160,000 are being sought for the freehold.

The Pawn is also a wet sales only operation but has planning permission for a commercial kitchen, offering scope for a new owner to add a food offer to what’s described as a “steady wet-led business”. It’s being marketed at offers in the region of £215,000 for the freehold.

Smith & Clough’s Graeme Smith, who is handling the sales, said: “Each of these pubs offers an excellent opportunity as a stand-alone or as a group purchase. Each business is presented well throughout with a solid local reputation and even with the current trading restrictions each pub is fully compliant and has responded well since reopening in July.”
