New owners for Broadclyst rural pub

The New Inn, a community pub on the edge of the Devon village of Broadclyst, near Exeter, has been sold.

The community pub is a popular eating place that supports five skittles teams.

Set in three acres of land, it provides 100 seats across four separate trading areas, a skittle alley/function room, three-bedroom private accommodation on the first floor, and a trade area and car park outside.

Stonesmith of Exeter sold the leasehold off an asking price of £165,000 to the Saunders family on behalf of Alan Mcdonald. The Saunders are experienced in the licensed trade and their daughter, Rachel, has worked at the New Inn before.

The new owners plan to boost trade from functions and private parties by erecting a marquee in the gardens and offer regular live bands and, perhaps, a beer festival.
