A FREEHOLD pub with potential for development is on the market in Herefordshire.

The Balance Inn in Luston is being marketed by Christie & Co for £450,000.

Sat on the main road towards Leominster town centre, the agents said the village pub has a great reputation for high quality food with the restaurant serving local produce and an ever changing menu and a bar offering a range of local ales in the snug area with a large outdoor area for the warmer months.

The pub has four main ground floor trading areas, along with a function room to the rear and well presented owner's accommodation on the first floor.

The building features an entrance conservatory to accommodate 30 covers, dining room with space for 30 covers, bar with main bar servery, loose tables and bar seating, a snug area with lounge seating and open fire, and a function area with pool table and additional bar

It also boasts a fully equipped commercial kitchen, a utility/store and a beer cellar.

Trade fixtures and fittings are owned outright and will be included within the sale, Christie & Co said.

Outside, there is an attractive beer garden area and a large car parking area for patrons, while at the rear of the property is a storage area which could also be used as part of any development.

The first-floor owner's accommodation has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen/diner and lounge area.
