Sun In The Wood, Ashmore Green


The Sun in the wood is located in the picturesque and affluent village of Ashmore Green just two miles from the bustling Berkshire town of Newbury and home to Vodafone UK just a few miles away.

This site is stylishly decorated with a contemporary and modern feel, but still retains the character of the village pub where walkers, cyclists, villagers and visitors are all extended the same warm welcome

Trading potential

The sun in the wood is nestled down a country lane just to the north of Newbury and through its reputation for great food and service attracts custom from near and far.  Consisting of the main bar area and dining covers for circa 80 this pub sits in our “Great Pub Great Food” trading segment and has all the equipment required to achieve this.  The conservatory can be easily used as a meeting or private dining room, the main dining room can be closed off and be used for private functions.

New Business Partner Profile

This is an amazing opportunity for a new Business partner(s) who have excellent culinary skills to take an already solid business and really put there on stamp on it.  This site really lends itself to contemporary modern dining and would suit a chef operator who wants to excel and build their reputation, whilst maintaining the character and ambience of the country pub.
