Asset 2

With its traditional feel and prime location, the Rising Sun does trade well throughout the year, however it comes into its own during the Spring and Summer when the riverside garden is optimised. Current trade is still orientated towards a regular sport based market however a consistent and quality food and drink menu will enhance business throughout the daytime and week trade.

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

“The pub rental opportunity at the Rising Sun requires a well rounded operator who can manage the existing business with its loyal regular trade base, plus the vision to embrace the changes needed to encourage new guests into the pub. A great town centre food and coffee offer is an opportunity to maximise the terrific position of the pub which should be busy 7 days a week. Looking further ahead there will be the fantastic trade opportunity offered by the Folk Festival and with investment, there is the potential for guest accommodation to be developed at the site.”

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.
