Description and Trading Style

Location and Local Amenities

The village of Kings Sutton is an active place with a lively local network (see www.kingssutton.net). There are good road links via the nearby M40, and there is a pre school and primary school in the village. Further schools and amenities are available in nearby Banbury.


Trade: Main bar with large servery and lounge bar. Dining areas (approx 60 covers), kitchen, WC’s, car park (approx 15 cars) & terrace. Private: 2 double rooms, lounge, kitchen, shower room, bathroom & office.

Current and Future Markets

The pub currently trades to the village and wider areas, as well as to visitors and passers by. New tenants would wish to widen the existing customer base through promoting the food in and around the local area.


We seek mature minded and experienced operators who would mix well in a village environment. As a mine host character, you would need to offer quality pub food at sensible prices to attract the locals.
