We are delighted to offer the opportunity to run a well established entertainment driven public house on a high street location in Surrey. The (Airfield) Tavern is a traditional public house with a warm and friendly atmosphere, consisting of an open plan bar and is popular for its live music and sport, with a wide screen TV showing all major sporting events. Although the Tavern is predominantly liquor driven it has the potential to develop an appropriate food offer and also boasts a large beer garden at the rear of the property, with a heated patio area for those colder evenings.

The (Airfield) Tavern is an entertainment driven, traditional pub, which is very popular in the evenings, especially at weekends, majoring on live music and sport. It attracts locals and has a strong community spirit, reinforced by regular weekly activities. The Tavern requires applicants who have experience running high energy pub businesses and will offer this establishment some further stability and growth from a strong starting point.

The private accommodation consists of six bedrooms, a domestic kitchen, a bathroom and a lounge.

* 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.
