The Wedderburn Tavern is a stunning “authentic country pub” set on over 10 acres (4.0469 hectares) of land in the heart of the Maniototo Plain. It is strategically located on the world-famous Otago Central Rail Trail.

This is a wonderful opportunity to secure a very well-priced, iconic Central Otago business with an affluent captive market! The current owners have been here 8 years but now wish to spend more time with their family.

Built in 1885, the historic Wedderburn Tavern was once the preferred stop-over for coaches and wagons and is now the favourite destination for Rail Trail cyclists. Located close to the summit and at the halfway point of the Rail Trail, Wedderburn is the perfect stop to explore and experience the uniqueness of Central Otago.

The Tavern enjoys strong patronage primarily from locals and guests of the Wedderburn Cottages located directly opposite. The restaurant can cater for up to 50 diners and is also a popular venue for functions ranging from 21st birthdays to duck-shooting groups and hunt clubs!

Visitor accommodation currently has shared bathroom facilities and a family room with a cosy fire place, games, TV and DVD with the guest rooms comprising:

The 140-year old mud brick musterers’ quarters with one double bed and one single bed
The original Wedderburn Tavern dairy, also built of sun-dried mud bricks has two singles beds or a king bed
Three comfortable bedrooms in the tavern
The owners accommodation consists of a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 2 living area mud brick home, which had significant renovations completed in 2011.

There are many opportunities for motivated operator/s to take this business to the next level by leveraging against the ever-popular Rail-Trail traffic. Perhaps further enhance the restaurant and/or construct additional accommodation facilities. There is also the added bonus of great forward bookings in place for the next operator.

If you are looking for a freehold going concern business offering a home & income this is a great opportunity.

This is a very good business situated on the Rail Trail offering great accommodation, bar and restaurant facilities plus a large owners home with a great outlook of the surrounding mountain ranges and rural environment. With proven cash-flow this business ticks all the boxes for a business, home & lifestyle.
