Pub Tenancy - Soulbury

Could you run this pub in Soulbury?

The Boot is a traditional community pub, located at the heart of Soulbury, Leighton Buzzard, that is set to undergo a huge transformation. This is a charming roadside pub that has a warm feel and welcoming atmosphere and is well established for its delicious home cooked food and wide offer of drinks.

The trading area consists of a large open plan space which can cater for up to 100 diners. It has high ceilings in part that give a bright open feel as well as areas with lower ceilings that provide a cosy snug feel which are ideal for private dining and functions. The trading area has great potential to be easily zoned to enhance guests dining experience. The pub boasts a large catering kitchen and a front and rear beer garden. It also benefits from a car park with space for up to 30 cars.


We have exciting investment plans to breathe a new lease of life into the Boot whilst maintaining its cosy, traditional feel. Internally the pub will be completely redecorated throughout including new flooring, a new back bar design, refurbishment to the facilities and a brand new kitchen. There will be external decoration including new signage, lighting and works to the rear garden to enhance the space and allow for 40 additional covers. At the front of the pub there will be a new timber structure with festoon lighting, hanging baskets and planters to add to the curb appeal of the pub and the car parks will also be entirely resurfaced.


This fantastic pub opportunity comes with domestic accommodation that consists of three bedrooms, a private kitchen and lounge.
