The Welby Arms has been for many years a noteable landmark venue in a very attractive location. The property, Grade II Listed is an early 19th Century stone and red brick built public house. Location of Church Street with excellent car parking facilities is ideal. The village has a population of 273 with a large catchment area including Grantham (4 miles) Harlaxton (1 mile) Sedgebrook (3 miles) Belvoir (just over 3 miles) and Melton Mowbray (11 miles). There is a primary school and a community centre. The famous village Festival held over the May Bank Holiday attracts several thousand visitors every year.
The building provides a restaurant with up to 50 covers, a bar area, snug and first floor living accommodation. Outside there is a useful range of outbuildings. The business only re-established recently is closed due to health reasons. There is undoubtedly considerable potential and a great opportunity here to establish a quality eating house and bar facility.
