After five years of ownership, publican Jan Kendall has placed the Half Moon, in the small village of High Wych, east Hertfordshire, on the market. The Half Moon is a detached character property with a prominent location in High Wych Lane. It is well placed to attract passing trade and custom from nearby Bishop's Stortford and Harlow as well as villagers from High Wych, which is close to Sawbridgeworth. On sale through Christie & Co (Milton Keynes), the pub has a main bar with a fireplace and exposed beams, a beer garden with a timber outbuilding and a car park. There is a separate dining room that is not currently used but would make an ideal snug. The owner's accommodation has two bedrooms. Stewart Harkness, of Christie & Co, said: "At present the trade at the Half Moon is mainly wet-led, so there is scope for a new owner to introduce a food trade. "This is an opportunity to acquire the freehold interest in a character village pub at a time when freehold freehouses are in strong demand and short supply." Christie & Co is seeking £310,000 for the freehold interest.
