Fiddler’s Elbow Fish Bar Offers: £225,000 Agent: John Amos and Co Call: 01568 610310 NEW to the market with John Amos & Co, Leominster is a rare opportunity to purchase a traditional fish and chip shop in the thriving and historic village of Leintwardine.
A large village on the Herefordshire and Shropshire border, Leintwardine is a popular destination for families, walkers and holiday makers.
Alongside an already established village community, tourist trade obviously has beneficial impact on local businesses within the village which include a Post Office, butcher’s shop, petrol station, and doctor’s surgery. The picturesque village, on the River Teme, has great historical interest and is listed in the Doomsday book as Lenteurde.
“Modern Leintwardine is a great mix of old and new,”
says Tess Macleod of the selling agents, John Amos and Co.
“It has a vibrant community feel which is so often lost in modern day villages.”
This busy village also supports two popular hostelries, The Lion, also having accommodation and The Sun Inn.
Fiddler’s Elbow has a long association with the Sun, formerly owned by Florence Lane, E n g l a n d ’ s longest serving landlady. The Sun Inn was sold to the current owner of Fiddler’s Elbow Fish Bar in 2009.
As the public house does not cater for food, the landlord has been more than happy for customers to consume their fish and chips while enjoying a drink in the pub.
The property itself is situated just a short walk from the lovely village green and river bridge and consists of a p r e p a r a t i o n room and shop, approximately 23.13 sq m, and t h r e e - b e d - roomed residential accommodation, approximately 107.25 sq m. The whole is located in a predominantly private residential area.
“The shop certainly enjoys a local and tourist captive audience and is an opportunity too good to be missed,”
