The key to the Oddfellows’ success is maintaining consistent trade throughout the day and during the week. Given its compact size, busy Friday and Saturday nights are important, but not essential. The pub attracts a mature crowd through the week and a lively guest base at weekends.

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

“The Oddfellows needs an experienced, hands-on operator who enjoys the banter of regulars but also embraces visitors wanting a traditional wet-led pub experience. Efficiency is key in being able to run the business on a tight budget, as is a passion for great ales and maximising community spirit.”

Ian Pearson

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.
