The pub recently benefited from a refurbishment programme and has a strong food focus, therefore there is plenty of potential to build on local trade. The lack of space to extend the property beyond its current footprint and the strong seasonal bias has led Hall & Woodhouse to put the pub on the market. We require an operator to continue trading the business whilst a buyer is found and the sale completed. There will be a guaranteed period to operate the business during the busy Summer season, until 5th October 2020.

This is an ideal opportunity for an individual or a couple with proven catering knowledge to take on a low risk, short-term business. It would be ideal either for operators who have not previously run their own business to ‘test the water’, or for under-funded individuals looking for an opportunity to grow funds for investment in a longer term position going forward. It would also be a great pub for a multiple operator looking to extend their portfolio.

Currently the domestic accommodation is occupied by the existing front of house manager and therefore the successful applicant would have separate accommodation within the area. In all other cases, a discussion will be necessary to agree appropriate private accommodation requirements going forward.

* 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.
