The Christie and Co brochure says: “The Falcon has been owned by our client since 2007, having previously operated the business. During this time the property has benefited from continued investment and continues to build upon its fine reputation locally as a very good food led pub, set in a picturesque village.

“There remains scope to further enhance the property, with opportunities to develop the area and buildings adjacent to the function room - additional trading area/accommodation and village shop.

“The business would now ideally suit an owner operator looking to acquire a rare freehold property in this affluent catchment area.”
