There is a fantastic opportunity at the Barley Mow to run outdoor events and camping in the adjoining fields, perfect for an entrepreneurial operator.”

Asset 2

The Barley Mow has traditionally had a loyal following from families and seniors, and there is huge potential here to re-engage with this guest base.

The business is currently heavily dependent on summer trade due to the pub’s fantastic gardens. However there is a great opportunity here to get the business back to high levels of trade all year round by attracting groups of walkers and cyclists, and engaging with the local community through events and activities.

* Fair Maintainable Trade (FMT):

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 to rent, 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.

Code of Practice:

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:

The Full Investment Breakdown for each public house is higher than the minimum investment we will accept. This is 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.

Working Capital:

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.
