Seventeenth century Herefordshire pub on the market

A seventeenth century pub in Herefordshire is on the market for £495,000 freehold following a two-year refurbishment.

The Kilpeck Inn features a 60-cover dining space, four letting bedrooms and owners' flat and is up for sale with Colliers International.

Hotels specialist Peter Brunt from Colliers International said the refurbished property would offer "enormous potential" for new owners.

He said: "The Kilpeck Inn is a superb example of what can be achieved in a contemporary country pub.

"Our client's vision and energy has provided a wonderful space with impeccably green credentials that will ensure much lower-than-normal running costs for years to come."

The Kilpeck Inn re-opened in 2010 and was recently entered into the 2015 Michelin Guide.

Brunt said: "In the five years since it re-opened, the inn has never benefited from hands-on, on-site management. Live in chefs have provided a quality catering product, but this combination has not optimised the inn's enormous potential."

"Our client has strong industry connections and as a local resident was one of those people who did not wish to see the community lose its pub. He stepped in and redeveloped the site into the wonderful business there today.

"The community came out in force at the time and has supported the Kilpeck Inn ever since."

The original village cottage was built from stones 'liberated' from the nearby Kilpeck castle which was partly dismantled following the English Civil War in 1650.
