“The Halfway Inn is a pub that will suit a food-based operator.

I’m looking for applicants who can combine a love of great dishes and service with a creative and energetic marketing flair, to introduce and promote events, and most importantly to shout about the pub to passing trade and via social media.

Team building skills are key to recruiting well and retaining a strong team.”

There are two main groups of pub guests.

The primary group are locals who use the pub because of the great ambience, food and service. The second group is passing trade due to the convenient location and visibility of the pub. Therefore clear messaging and maintaining an attractive exterior are key.

Weekends are very busy and there is a great opportunity to extend this trade through promotions and offers during the week.

* 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.
