The Barge Inn is a substantial, Grade II listed,Georgian building of over 5500sq ft arranged over four floors. Recently refurbished open plan trading area with an oak floor and impressive feature bar with views across the canal. The 'crop circle room' with its famous ceiling mural (painted by artist Vince Palmer in 1997) is a striking feature. Inside, the pub has room for approximately 60 plus diners and casual drinkers. The lower ground floor contains a full height beer cellar, large fully equipped catering kitchen, store rooms and gents toilets. Attractive open plan stairs lead to a generously proportioned first floor with living accommodation ( potential B&B ) of six rooms plus a bathroom. Further stairs lead to the full length attic 'winch room' currently used for storage but ideally suited for conversion to accommodation. The property is heated by gas central heating with a large log burning stove in the main bar.
To the front of the property is a popular canal-side beer garden (60) with a feature sarsen standing stone and wonderful views across open countryside to the White Horse on the hills beyond. To the rear is a further garden area with concrete base and consent for a 600sq ft marquee. There is a car park for 20+ cars and good access for delivery vehicles.
This is a one off chance to acquire a truly unique pub and lifestyle opportunity, located in a beautiful waterside setting.
Current trade 65/35 wet / dry with great potential to extend food trade and introduce letting rooms. Annual barrelage -250.
The Barge's neighbouring property is currently being developed as an art gallery/studios/observatory.
