A NUNEATON town centre based boozer has quietly been placed on the market.
The Hinckley Free Press have learnt that The George Eliot Hotel, based on Bridge Street, is currently ‘to let’ through Savills letting agency, as a listing for the pub and hotel has appeared on their website.
Interestingly, a “to let” sign has not yet been placed on the front of the building at the time of publication (Wednesday, 27 April).
The guide rent price for the entire three-storey terraced property is £50,000 per year for a new “free of tie” lease.
And, according to Savills, some of the George’s “key features” include an ‘extensive’ beer garden, managers accommodation at the second floor, and it is a short distance from the town railway station, at a three-minute drive away and six-minute walk away.
As well as the beer garden and hotel, it also sports a beer cellar, which doubles as the basement.
As it is currently trading as a public house, a premises licence has already been granted on the property in accordance with the Licensing Act 2003.
Alcoholic drinks can be sold on-site from 9am to 1am on Sunday to Thursday, and 9am to 2am on Friday to Saturday, according to the agents.
The building is not protected by any historic Grade listing, however, agents have explained that it is situated inside of the Nuneaton town centre Conservation Area.
It underwent a refurbishment as recently as November last year.
Commercial property search engine, Realla, states that The George was built 121 years ago back in 1900 – making it a rather historic and ‘characterful’ building.
It may be better known to many town-goers under its previous name ‘The Bull Hotel’.
It got its current name from Nuneaton’s local famed novelist and poet, Mary Ann Evans, who was best known under her pen name of George Eliot.
