Pub Overview

Situated in the heart of the charming north Bedfordshire village of Clapham, the Fox and Hounds currently operates as a two-bar community pub with a charming garden and children’s play area. Brimming with potential for further development, we at Charles Wells are keen to work with the right operator on a joint investment project that will see the two existing bars combined into a single zoned trading area, an extension to the kitchen, an entirely new toilet block and a revamping of the extensive beer garden to the rear of the pub. With a prominent position just off the A6 bypass to Rushden and a short drive from central Bedford, the Fox and Hounds is ideally placed to maximise the return on this planned investment. 

Suitable Applicants

Experienced operators from other managed or tenanted backgrounds with a commitment to great hospitality would suit the Fox and Hounds nicely. As an established, popular yet manageable venue, a focus on traditional pub catering and the motivation to drive a mid-week sales plan would broaden the pub’s appeal beyond its established clientele.
