Pubs To Lease In Cople – The Five Bells Is Available !

The Five Bells is situated on a busy road in Cople, a village a few miles east of Bedford in the county of Bedfordshire. It is only a few minutes from the busy A421 main trunk road between the A1 & M1 motorway. The 400-year-old Five Bells is an attractive building in the centre of the village, opposite the church and derived its name from when the Church had five bells.

Pub Layout

The pub has 40 covers that are all serviced via the main servery. There are two separate restaurant areas and a lounge area which you can also eat in. Good sized and a well-equipped kitchen that any chef would be pleased to work in. The pub benefits from having its own car park & beer garden which could also have an outside bar. This could help to take the stress off the main bar during those busy summer periods. The pub has the facilities to allow it to open a little village store as there are no other shops in the village.

The stated ingoing figures are correct at point of advertising. Please be aware there may be additional costs.

The Five Bells is a pub that is very important to the local community; it also caters for those who like to travel to have a good quality dining experience in an informal environment. The pub would benefit from serving a good variety of cask ales and a selection of good quality wines including a more premium offer, as the houses locally do appear to be of a good standard and the demographic report substantiates this. Although there are not many amenities within the village, the church opposite is busy with weddings and christenings which could obviously lend itself quite nicely to passing footfall. There is a garden centre locally and also a community centre, which if targeted correctly, could also attract passing trade. This site needs an owner-operator who can embed themselves within the local community. Food experience is key along with good marketing skills; this site will need marketing well to attract the footfall it requires but could be a fantastic business for the right operator.

Private Accommodation

The private accommodation consists of three bedrooms, living room, kitchen and bathroom.
