Coach & Horses Royston Herts

Extensive Refurbishment Planned

A striking refurbishment will transform the historic Coach & Horses into a premium community hub. Traditional timber beams, a roaring fireplace, and cosy seating will combine to create a welcoming, cosy atmosphere. This will be supported by a new classic pub food menu, whilst the refined lounge and snug areas will increase covers and diversify the pub's offering. A vibrant external area will give the Coach & Horses a contemporary edge, extending its appeal, especially throughout the summer months.

Great Location

The Coach & Horses is located in the centre of Royston, an affluent commuter town. Found on the main high street, the pub is a short walk from the train station and nestled amongst a range of attractions including the Art Gallery and local Hockey and Football Clubs, so passing footfall is high. Royston itself is a growing town with a high proportion of young professionals who commute from London and Cambridge. With new housing estates still being built, residents are looking for a premium local pub to socialise and unwind in.

Fantastic Potential

The beautiful refurbishment, with a new menu full of pub classics and an exceptional beer garden, will create a stand-out destination pub capable of trading at all points of the day. An extensive drinks offering including premium coffee, craft beers and high quality wines will also attract local customers looking for a vibrant place to socialise. This is a pub with great potential, all we're missing is the right person to drive it forward. So, could that be you?

The calculation of the Estimated Minimum Ingoing Costs assumes a minimum deposit of 1 month's rent or £3,000 (whichever is greater) and that fixtures and fittings (F&F) are rented. The subsequent deposit build up and F&F rental costs are not included in the rent model or ongoing costs below.
