Historic Somerset pub on the market with Colliers International
With parts of the building dating back before the English Civil War, the Full Moon at Rudge has been at the heart of this rural community for centuries.
On the market with global real estate advisor Colliers International at a figure “priced to sell” of £390,000, the traditionally configured Somerset pub is just 20 minutes from Bath and a similar distance from Longleat in an attractive country setting.
With five letting bedrooms and a large trade garden the Grade II listed Full Moon is an intimate and welcoming pub with flagstone floors and feature fireplace.
The function room built in 1990 will seat about 85 people and there is also a skittle alley.
Ed Jefferson from Colliers International’s hotels team said: “To say the Full Moon represents excellent value for money is an understatement.
“In addition to the public areas there is a spacious owner’s flat on the first floor featuring an attractive lounge, two double bedrooms, bathrooms and a kitchenette. The pub has a cosy feel with intimate spaces, flagged floors and settles to set the tone.”
The village is just off the A36 and is ideally situated for local trade from nearby Rode, Beckington and Frome, as well as Westbury, Trowbridge and Warminster. There are attractive pub gardens to front and rear with views of the countryside, making it the ideal summer pub, plus room for a marquee.
Ed Jefferson added: “Our client acquired the property in 2017 and has carried out a number of improvements. But as a result of a change in circumstance they have decided to sell the pub creating an excellent opportunity for somebody to take the business forward.
“The Full Moon is only lightly traded so there is obvious potential to complete the refurbishment, re- open the rooms and re-introduce a food offering.”
