The Cock Inn is a beautiful countryside pub, currently categorized as a  ‘Quality Village Local’  with traditional interior and a fantastic garden, situated in the affluent village of Sarratt.

This public house boasts an open fire in the bar area, and exposed brick and traditional beams in the ‘old barn’ dining area. The Cock Inn’s large, well appointed garden has ample room for 80+ covers and is a real asset in the summer months. The hard standing car park has c.45 spaces, with a large field behind for overflow parking.

The pub requires applicants who have a strong background in catering, and who will be able to build on the established reputation of the business and drive growth. It will require some continuity and a good sense of community to maintain the feel of the pub and its position in the village. Ideally it needs a Business Partner who will grow turnover and keep a tight control of costs in order to convert top line figures into bottom line growth. The Cock would be ideally suited to a couple, one of whom is capable of running a busy kitchen.

The Cock Inn is a quality village local with a focus on good quality home cooked food. With a strong lunchtime trade, it currently caters well for older and younger generations alike. The Cock Inn has strong links with the Parish Church which is located directly opposite the pub. It offers a wide variety of wines, beers, ciders and soft drinks including several ales from the award winning Badger Beer range.

Misrepresentation

*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.
