Wellington is situated in beautiful rolling Herefordshire countryside and is a very popular residential village with a large number of good quality private homes and an active local community. In recent years there has been considerable residential development and this is ongoing. It is situated just off the A49 Ross on Wye to Shrewsbury trunk road, some 5 miles north of Hereford, 7 Leominster, and with easy access to the A417 to Gloucester and A44 to Worcester. The Old Boot is the only pub in the village and is centrally located in a position to attract both local and drive out destination trade. 

Despite this pub having been closed for almost four years, it still remains furnished and in good condition under the circumstances. With decoration and a thorough clean it could be ready to operate at relatively short notice. It has extensive trading facilities both internally and externally, and generous owners accommodation. The property is also located in one of the most select and sought after residential villages in the whole of Herefordshire. It is a business which is worthy of an early inspection. 



The dining facilities interconnect and at one time were a myriad of smaller rooms – 4/5 in total. The MAIN BAR AREA is a very attractive room with quarry tiled floor and part wood sprung floor, fixed settle style seating and some pews, together with slat back emulsion pine chairs and cocktail chairs, currently arranged for 40 plus customers. There is a feature fireplace with antique brick surround, keystone (brick) arch and a solid fuel burner installed. The DINING SECTIONS are in two parts: A RECEPTION AREA with feature Victorian fireplace with cast iron back fitting, and parquet flooring which leads into the fist DINING SECTION which has boarded floor, exposed beam ceiling, exposed antique brick walls, and dining chairs and tables for up to 20 customers. 

The MAIN RESTAURANT is similarly appointed with boarded flooring, part beamed walls, contemporary dining chairs and pine topped tables on cast iron legs currently arranged for 30 customers. It leads into a CONSERVATORY which, when fully furnished, can cater for a further 12-14 diners. There is direct access from the conservatory onto the rear trade garden. 

CATERING KITCHEN: The catering kitchens are of a good size and arranged in two principal areas with Altro nonslip flooring, well equipped with a selection of catering effects and work surfaces, fully tiled walls and a three section fitted extraction canopy. 

Off the inner hallway, conveniently located for the main bar and gardens are a set of LADIES’ and GENTLEMEN’S CUSTOMER TOILETS. 



At first floor is the PRIVATE ACCOMMODATION, arranged as follows:

BEDROOM 1: Small double (previously used as an office).

BEDROOM 2: Small double with shower cubicle. 

BEDROOM 3: Double with EN SUITE shower room.

BEDROOM 4: Double with EN SUITE family bathroom.

BEDROOM 5: Good size double.

KITCHEN/LOUNGE: With feature beamed ceiling. The kitchen has modern fitted units. 


The large and enclosed gardens are a feature of the pub, having two brick OUTBUILDINGS: A GARAGE and GENERAL STORE. The gardens are mainly lawned with part patio and also have a covered seating area with decked base. 


To the front of the premises is a tarmac patio area utilised as a trading area, particularly popular with customers. There is also a tarmac car park to the rear and side of the property with space for 15 vehicles.
