As well as commercial space the pub also comes with accommodation above.
The first floor is home to three double bedrooms, two single bedrooms, a lounge and bathroom.
Of late the pub has only been used to sell drinks, despite having a commercial kitchen.
The agents selling the pub, Sidney Phillips, say that they believe with minor refurbishment the pub could be brought back into use.
“The unused kitchen could be utilised to create a food menu potentially attracting a new clientele and income source,” read the particulars.
The pub has closed a number of times in the past few years most notably in October 2014 and September 2016.
According to the list those selling the building are hoping to find people interested in taking on the site for a longer time frame.
“Our client is now looking for an enthusiastic long term tenant who can create and maintain a successful business within the premises,” read the listing.
