Overview

The Bay Horse in Stourport on Severn is a stone's throw across from Hartlebury Common. This friendly and popular pub is larger on the inside than might be expected!!! Outside, the pub boasts a large car park and split level beer garden which is a great suntrap in the warmer weather.  The lounge bar is equipped with a dart board and pool table and lends itself to drinkers whilst the older snug, traditional dining room at a lower level with beamed ceilings is best suited for dining.
 
The Bay Horse has a great local reputation, and feeds well off other venues in the area. The site currently takes on average £6,000 wet and around £1,000 a week on their own food offer. We are looking for an operator with a passion for good, hearty pub food who will enjoy the challenge of growing sales.
 
If this is not the pub for you do you know someone who is? If so, let us know using our Refer a Friend scheme and if successful in being placed in the pub we will give you a £1,000! (Terms & conditions apply)

What’s expected from you:

Our pubs are the heart of the community, bringing communities together by serving great drinks and fantastic events. It’s a proven business-model, perfect for either someone looking to take on a pub for their first time or more experienced operators to drive sales, standards and guest experience.

In addition to the £5k security deposit required for this agreement, you will need to cover legal costs (£360), and your own insurance (except building insurance, which we’ll cover). Also, you’ll want to start thinking about your team; taking care of paying them and all other employment matters.

Before we all sign the agreement and see you heading into a whole new life, you’ll just need to show us proof that you’ve had independent financial advice from an accountant and solicitor and have completed a sustainable business plan, in accordance with the Pubs Code. And, of course, obtain your personal licence (which we can help with) and complete your induction training.

It’s a five-year commitment, so you have loads of time to build the business 
and get it performing brilliantly!
