You may have always fancied yourself as a publican; with the opportunity to make a business your own, and bring some life to a community, or perhaps you’re just intrigued to see what’s out there.

So now might be the time, with a number of pubs on the market in the Chippenham area.

The town is already known for providing an interesting night out for people as it is, so we wonder who could be the next to take it to a new level.

One pub which is for lease at the moment is the New Inn on New Road listed by Sidney Philips.

This includes an ornamental fireplace, two double bedrooms and a shower room with a corner shower.

The current leasing asking price is £19,950 according to the website, and the turnover is between £200K - £500K.

The beer garden looks like it could be a delight, with picnic benches creating a relaxed, social atmosphere that no one could say no to on a summer’s day.

We’re not sure how much of a modern vibe you could say it has on the inside, but it definitely looks cosy, with the black beams adding to the traditional, welcoming environment.

Next up is the Three Crowns, also listed by Sidney Phillips.

Recently, the pub was given the title of the CAMRA branch pub of the year 2022.

Included, is the furniture, as well as fixtures and fittings, outside seating and parking for a number of cars.

The owner will have access to two flats, perfect if you’re working a late shift or an early start.

There’s something fresh, and homely about this pub, and looks like it could be jazzed up to suit a range of customer needs.

Swindon Advertiser:

According to the pub’s website, the building; ‘Situated on The Causeway (in ancient times a causeway to the east of the town), was routed through a forest and through swampy land around Pewe.

‘It was a creation of paramount necessity to enable produce to be taken to Chippenham Market; is as old as Chippenham itself, and was made and repaired by the Borough.’ Have you ever thought of running your own pub? Let us know what you’d call it, and how you’d run yours in the comments.
