Kidlington is a large affluent village on the very edge of Oxford and benefits from excellent transport links into the city. It is just a few miles from Oxford Parkway train station and the village has direct access to the very busy A34 which links the M40 with the M4. This already very popular, busy pub presents huge scope for an enthusiastic publican to take this pub to the next level. The Six Bells is a perfectly located, very popular two bar pub with a fantastic pub garden and a popular function room that is the centre of the immediate community. Externally the trade garden is fully fenced so perfect for families and perfectly lends itself to family led activities, fun days, BBQs and beer festivals. There is ample parking and additional people-watching seating to the front of the pub. The trade kitchen is adequately fitted out to produce a traditional pub menu, including traditional Sunday Roasts.
There is a loyal customer base from which to build. The pub already is regularly visited by local residents, employees from local businesses, passing trade and families. This strong trade base gives the Six bells a great foundation from which it can fulfil its full potential. The Six Bells is overall an easily operated business with masses of potential; the two main bars are very manned with the trading areas benefitting from a popular dartboard and pool table along with TV screens which are not intrusive on the cosy areas of the pub. This is a turn-key pub already trading very well and benefitting from all of the key ingredients, a fantastic location, a trading area in excellent decorative order, small customer car park, a large enclosed beer garden with children’s play area, roadside seating and a catering kitchen in a great location. The pub now requires some of that special great host magic that only a motivated publican can offer to really set this pub apart from the competition and offer something to the entire community. There is plenty to build on; the pub already has a loyal following for televised sports and home to many pub teams including pool, darts and Aunt Sally. The opportunity here is to introduce a compelling pub menu, Sunday lunches, extend opening hours and hold regular community events, such as beer festivals and garden parties. Whether new to the trade, or an experienced operator, this pub could be the answer.
