The Green Man is located in the village of Long Itching; the village name is taken from the River Itchen which runs through this beautiful ancient village. The village itself has some 2,100+ residents and houses ancient buildings including a Tudor-timbered house which once saw Queen Elizabeth 1 stay there back in the 1570s. Long Itching is a short 15-minute drive to from Leamington Spa and is benefiting from new housing going up in the area. The Green Man nestles in the middle of a well-established area of the old village and has a large car-park and field to the rear of the pub which in the summer is a mecca for those wishing to soak up the summer sun sat close to the banks of the river Itching. The field is also used for camping/caravans (up to five, but with no electrical hook-ups) and festivals from spring through to autumn. Character abounds in the Green Man, from the set-back frontage where drinkers can sit and watch the world go by, through to open fires for those cold winter’s nights where customers can snuggle up under low beams supping a pint. The main bar of the Green Man has bags of charm, with a small bar and plenty of seating (52 covers) and even a small area perfect for poker nights and traditional games. The fixtures and fittings are in great condition and fit perfectly with the “olde worldly” feel the front of the pub has. The lounge/function room is a light, airy room at the rear of the pub which benefits from large aspect windows over-looking a small garden to the rear, then onto the large field across the car park. This room is serviced by a small bar and has new flooring, making it great for functions, dining and other gatherings. There are 42 covers in this room and hosts up to 100 people. With the car park (40 spaces) and other facilities, this room is perfect for every occasion and has the potential to host small wedding parties, christenings and parties of all descriptions. The living accommodation is in great order and equally benefits from loads of charm. There are two double bedrooms, one single bedroom, a lounge, office/dining room, kitchen and bathroom.
Historically, the Green Man has traded as a wet-led pub, and a cheeseboard/locally sourced pork pie offering would work perfectly in this little gem of a pub. There’s a small catering kitchen, which has the potential to be developed in the future should a new tenant wish to develop a significant food offering, but it’s perfect now to deliver buffet-style catering for functions hosted in the lounge. The pub is well supported by the local community with the WI and local golf society calling it home. Social media links and an online presence need to be forged to really put this pub on the map, and there are bags of potential for someone who wants a village location, but with all the trappings of a great community in what is a relatively affluent area of the West Midlands.
Please note that the energy performance certificate is available from the landlord.
