Hailing from the 17th Century and complete with wooden beams, a thatched roof, an enchanting open fire and buckets of ‘olde world’ charm, the Half Moon is a shining example of a cosy, traditional, rural English pub. Loved by the local walkers and cyclists that frequent the many footpaths and bridleways in close proximity, the pub also enjoys regular custom from visitors to Grendon Lakes, a popular nearby camping and water sports facility.
With its personality split amicably between thriving country restaurant and cosy local watering hole, the Half Moon’s reputation for quality cask ale is matched by its unpretentious yet delicious menu of traditional pub fare. If the idea of becoming the Half Moon's figurehead and an important part of the village community appeals, we would love to hear from you.
The Half Moon would benefit from an operator with solid catering experience and a desire to immerse themselves in community life in the charming village of Grendon. Marketing know-how will be vital, as there exists considerable potential to enhance awareness of all the pub has to offer amongst a wider demographic.
