Property Features:

Shrewsbury is a market town whose centre has a largely unaltered medieval street plan and over 660 listed buildings, including several examples of timber framing from the 15th and 16th centuries. Located 9 miles (14 km) east of the Welsh border, Shrewsbury serves as the commercial centre for Shropshire and mid-Wales. The Saddlers is situated in a convenient residential location close to a variety of excellent local amenities and within walking distance of the Shrewsbury town centre.

Opened in 1979, this estate pub takes its name from that of its first owner - George Saddler. It started life as a freehouse (apparently one of only two in the town at the time), with beers initially supplied principally by Wem Brewery. With one large bar area, this site is in good condition and supports many local sporting teams. The pub has a catering kitchen which is in need of some upgrading so that it can be fully utilised and there is also a ground level cellar.

Externally there is a well-kept beer garden with smoking shelter and a children's play area. There is also car parking available at this site.

Trading Style:

This community pub’s prime location within an estate means that not only is there a huge amount of trade on tap, but it’s also a key part of the social and sporting life of this suburb of Shrewsbury. Located at the heart of the community Saddlers offer revolves around community activities - whether that’s supporting local teams and clubs, family fun days or raising money for a local charity, there is always something happening.

The site will need a community minded operator with an interest in sports as these are key to the continuing success of this pub. Trade could grow further with a well-priced, simple food offering and securing the upgrade on the catering kitchen so experience of developing and delivering such an offer would be greatly advantageous.

Private Accommodation:

This consists of three bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen and bathroom.
