The Queens Head Hotel is in a prominent high street position in the small town of Rothbury on the edge of Northumberland National Park, it is a stone-built community mainstream pub that's steeped in history. Known for its quality food and a vibrant bar that also hosts live music events, this business also offers 7 well-presented letting rooms that are busy throughout the year. Especially during spring and summer when there's an influx of tourists, walkers and cyclists to the area.

Business facilities

The Queens Head trades across a large dining room throughout the week and on its busy Sundays and a small cosy public bar, which is full of traditional features. The kitchen can cater for up to 60 covers at full capacity. To the rear, there's also a pool room. The pub also offers 7 letting rooms on the first floor. Outside, there's a beer garden, a smoking solution and a car park with spaces for 8 vehicles. The pub also offers WIFI.

Your domestic accommodation consists of two bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge.

Who are we looking for:

Due to the large size of this business, we're looking for an experienced operator who has previously run high volume food operations and ideally also letting rooms. Managed pub experience would be ideal, as this pub is being marketed on a retail contract where standards are extremely important. You will also have a passion for live music, as the Queens Head has a great reputation for year-round entertainment and this is something that we're looking to continue.
