Asset 2

Currently the business operates on an 80/20 split in favour of drink. However, there is a significant opportunity to grow the business through increased consistency, and capitalising on the location with the pub’s trading times to supplement the regular and loyal food based trade. The local business is regular, but there are opportunities to increase the footfall through pub teams and events such as quizzes, entertainment and themed evenings.

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

“The ideal candidate will be an energetic operator looking to develop all aspects of the business with great service, food and drink, and a passion to make the pub the centre of the local community through sports, entertainment and events. It would suit a range of operators who are driven by a desire to run great local pubs.”

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.
