Asset 2

The Harbour is a well known pub in the area, which enjoys good year-round trade and appeals to all types of clientele. The position of the pub on the estuary of the River Ax, with a busy campsite adjoining, gives a significant uplift in the summer and at other times of the year during good weather. Trade is evenly split between food and drink.

*Trade volumes have been affected by Covid-19 lockdown closure periods.

“Due to the seasonal nature of this business, the ideal applicant will be able to demonstrate skills in adapting labour budgets and resources to the trade available. This pub is well suited to a couple or a family with at least one team member an experienced chef, therefore we would welcome applications from chefs and restaurateurs, and existing pub managers and tenants.”

Scott Rhodes-Ward

Business Development Partner, South West Region


* 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.
