Saffron Walden is an affluent market town close to the Essex / Herts border and midway between Cambridge and Bishops Stortford. The town is close to the M11, Stansted Airport and Audley End railway station. The Railway is a few minutes’ walk from the town centre in a predominately residential area.

Occupying a prominent corner site, The Railway is a detached building constructed of Cambridge white bricks under a pitched slate roof and single storey side extension. Post development, the traditional single bar area will provide approx. 56 covers served by a single bar. The kitchen is located on the first floor and is linked to the bar area via a dumbwaiter. Externally there will be well proportioned courtyard garden. Fully equipped catering kitchen, ample cellar and dry storage.

The living accommodation consists of lounge with kitchenette, one double bedroom and a bathroom. There is potential to increase internal covers by relocating the toilets upstairs.

There is a small car park to the right of the pub surrounded by outbuildings which would fare better as a vibrant courtyard for food and drinks.

In order for the business to reach its trading potential new partners will need to re-engage the locals at large, create key reasons to visit and an attractive food menu for daytime & evening customers.

This is an ideal opportunity for retailers who have the skill set to drive a premium, community, drinks led business. The ability to introduce a relevant food offer and create engaging reasons to visit is essential. Applicants must also have a strong understanding of marketing to drive awareness of the improvements to the property and retail offer.
