Description


This is an extremely rare opportunity to acquire a stunning leasehold pub which offers “a little piece of the countryside within the city centre” located right in the centre of Salisbury, Wiltshire.

The Royal George is ideally situated on the Bedwin Road just minutes walk from Salisbury city centre. The Royal George benefits over its rivals in the fact it has a delightful secluded beer garden, finished to a very high standard, a car park and owners accommodation.

The Salisbury area is renown for its affluence and military presence with some of the most stunning of the Wiltshire countryside upon its doorstep, a point which literally attracts thousands of day trippers throughout the year, who visit to take in the stunning natural scenery and beauty of this Cathedral City.

The Royal George is a traditional 15th century pub with additions made in the 18th century and was acquired by the present owners in 2004. During that time the business has earned an excellent reputation for offering a warm welcome, with well appointed facilities which ensures the business enjoys good reviews for its food, as well as frequent referrals and recommendations.

The vendor has developed the business including an overhaul and renovation of the property, which leaves a standard to be envied.

The Royal George has a compliment of well trained and motivated staff members, which is another major factor of the businesses success and reputation.
