A fantastic opportunity to open a brand new refurbished pub and become the premier site for food in the area.

The Wallingford Arms will be positioned as a quality local food pub with an extensive draught range plus craft and real ales, alongside the draught offer will be a selection of great wines and spirits & soft drinks. The planned investment will support this vision and this pub will be the pub of choice locally for great service, drinks and food. Situated on a busy main road the pub benefits from a large car park and large external area at the front. It will have a new commercial kitchen which will be equipped to deal with the anticipated demand upon reopening. The refurbishment of the property will mean that this is a pub that will have a complete offer with the perfectly designed kitchen, cellar & of course trading space.

Didcot is town that is expanding rapidly & quickly, There are approximately 3000 new houses being built just a short drive from the pub and there is more expansion planned over the next few years. The pub is 5 minutes from the A34 which is the main route between the M40 (Buckinghamshire) and the M4 (Berkshire). Its location at the center of the town means that it has a great roadside presence and with the redevelopment of the premises it will have great passing appeal and prominence.
