Great Tey is a beautiful village set in the fantastic countryside between Chelmsford and Colchester. The village has a strong community feel and thriving business services. There are many local beauty spots and the pub, church and primary school all work together to form the heart of this busy, well-supported community. The Chequers is centrally located in the village, next to the Church. Internally there are two bar trading areas as well as a forty cover restaurant/dining room. The site boasts a fully equipped trade kitchen that confidently caters for the forty covers on offer at this site. In the bar, there are pool and darts on offer, and in the lounge, there is space to enjoy a quieter drink by the open fire. Externally the pub has patio seating to the front with capacity for a potential fifty customers. The car park is located to the rear with capacity for 20 cars. Adjacent to the car park is a lovely sheltered beer garden where customers can enjoy a relaxing drink in the warmer weather.
The Chequers is a destination village pub that has a very good reputation for the quality of the food served and the service given by the current partner. The pub plays a full part in the village life of Great Tey acting as the hub for many events and social occasions. This site offers something for everyone and should look to continue supporting the local community as well as attracting visitors to this stunning part of the world. The successful applicant will have to commit to the pub's well-established reputation whilst also bringing their own personality to the pub. It will be vital that they keep the offer fresh and build upon the foundations already in place. Strong knowledge of cask ales and fine wines will go a long way at this site alongside the ability to provide a fresh, locally sourced menu for customers old and new.
