“I’m looking for applicants who will provide stability and help to grow the business even further from a very positive position. The business will require some continuity to maintain its current success as the destination food pub of choice in the town.

The Six Bells ideally needs a couple who can keep tight control of costs and can spend time in the business building the trade and maintaining the pub’s identity. A catering background or experience in a catering based sector is highly recommended, and a strong sense of community will also be an advantage.”

With its central high street location, the Six Bells benefits from a varied mix of guests during the day, including shoppers, diners and guests working locally.

During the evening and at weekends, the pub trades increasingly as a traditional local pub, and currently attracts guests of all ages and demographics, from younger guests to families and seniors.  The Six Bells offers great hospitality and guests enjoy the characterful and comfortable environment the pub offers, alongside high quality food and drink.

* Fair Maintainable Trade (FMT):

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 to rent, 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.

Code of Practice:

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:

The Full Investment Breakdown for each public house is higher than the minimum investment we will accept. This is 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.

Working Capital:

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.
