Trading Style –  Destination community food house.   

This 17th century inn and restaurant sits on a large corner plot within the parish of Kempston, Bedfordshire. It has a population of circa 20,000 people and together with Bedford, it forms an urban area with around 100,000 inhabitants. The town is currently undergoing a considerable expansion program with 3,000 houses being built within a mile of the King William IV.

The trading area is divided into four clear zones being the lounge bar, restaurant, dining area and snug. There is a well-equipped catering kitchen with stainless steel appliances and work surfaces. The kitchen also benefits from a walk-in freezer. There is a ground floor cellar with cooling and racking. The accommodation is situated on the first floor and benefits from 2 double bedrooms, 2 single Bedroom, Bathroom, lounge and a fitted kitchen.

The Garden to the rear of the property is secluded and mainly laid to lawn and offing seating for approx. 50 customers. Furniture to the front of the property consists of four benches and to the side there is space for a further 40 seats. The pub has great potential for a modern retailer with a good understanding of the local area. There is an opportunity to grow food sales by enhancing the menu and driving activity at a local level.

The King William IV has incredible potential for a modern operator who understands both town and village life and is keen to become an integral part of their local community. A strong focus on food is essential to build upon the pub’s already strong dining reputation, as is an eye on events and a passion for great cask ale
