Asset 2

The key to successful trading at the Silent Woman is to combine the various income streams so that the peak summer months are complemented by a strong guest base throughout the year. To achieve this, we’re looking for an operator(s) who can deliver premium evening and weekend dining all year round, with high volume family-driven business during the summer and holiday months.

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

“Given the unique location and available space offered by the Silent Woman, there is considerable potential to develop the business here in many different ways. The pub already has a licence as a wedding venue so the ideal applicant will have an entrepreneurial edge as well as being able to cope with the varied dining demands of the eclectic guest base. A  background in a range of catering styles would be a distinct advantage, as would a creative flair for developing alternative income streams such as camping.”

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.
