Sale of canal-side pub Queen’s Head in Congleton ‘a great opportunity’

queen's headTHE Queen’s Head in Congleton, Cheshire, has been brought to the market through specialist business property adviser Christie & Co.

Situated alongside the Macclesfield Canal and surrounded by countryside, the property is a traditional pub with a large beer garden, boules court and children’s play area, as well as landscaped gardens often used to house a marquee for events.

Dating back to the mid-1800s, the pub is thought to be named in commemoration of Queen Victoria’s reign.

In April 2006, it featured in a BBC Radio 4 programme depicting the way of life in the pub, in celebration of Queen Elizabeth’s 80th birthday.

There is a recently refurbished adjoining cottage which houses three double en-suite letting bedrooms, in addition to the three-bedroom owner’s accommodation above the pub.

The property lies only one mile from the city centre and presents a number of development opportunities subject to obtaining planning permission.

Tom O’Malley, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, said: “The Queen’s Head presents a great opportunity to acquire an attractive canal-side freehold Cheshire pub.”

Christie & Co is seeking an asking price of £675,000 + VAT for the freehold. @copy NewspaperTimes - All rights reserved
