The Barley Mow is a fantastic opportunity to run a quality village local in a desirable part of the country. The pub is full of character and charm, and is well known for music and themed food nights. It needs to be established as both a heart of the community and a destination to visit for quality pub fayre. The pub has 6 years remaining on the head lease and is therefore a great project for an operator to take on and run as a successful business. Year 1 rent will negotiable due to the pub currently not trading at FMT levels.

The domestic accommodation is extensive and comprises a 2 bedroom self-contained flat with a bathroom, kitchen and lounge/dining room, plus an additional 5 bedrooms.

* Fair Maintainable Trade (FMT) is the level of turnover and profit that we believe that the business is capable of delivering if being operated competently. The FMT is usually calculated by the Business Development Partner for the pub, who will produce a shadow profit and loss account for the business which supports the rent. A copy of the shadow profit and loss account will be provided during the recruitment process. Please see our Code of Practice for more information on FMT and rent. The Fair Maintainable Trade is not a guarantee of levels of trade or profit that will be made from the business – we strongly recommend you seek appropriate independent legal and business advice as part of your Business Plan.

† The Full Investment Breakdown for each public house is higher than the minimum investment we will accept because potential Business Partners with the minimum investment available can still be accepted as we are able to offer them financial support for the rest of the monies. The working capital incorporates the purchase of stock, glassware, loose catering effects and valuer fees – please note the number quoted on this website are based on estimates. The exact costs will be determined on the day you take on the public house by independent valuers and stock takers. Please see our Code of Practice for more information about investment.
