‘Pub on the hill’ for sale

A COUPLE who’ve run the same pub in Westbury on-Trym for more than 20 years hope soon to call last orders for the final time.

The Mouse, which was formerly known as the Royal Oak, has rarely changed hands in its history of more than 100 years but now Elaine and Billy Monaghan want to retire and have put it on the market.

The Mouse, known by many as “the pub on the hill”  stands at the top of Waters Lane next to Holy Trinity Church and has views over Westbury village.

It is a popular traditional local, with regular quiz nights, live music and lots of live sport on TV as well as an award-winning beer garden that has views across Blaise Castle and Henbury Golf Course.

Property agents Sprosen Ltd, who describe  The Mouse as “situated in a sought after location”, say the buyer  will pay £63k and take on a renewable lease with eight years left to run with Red Oak Taverns.
