The business has a strong history and our instructing clients invested many hundreds of thousands of pounds in the properties redevelopment (Dec 2013) and have a price guide that falls well below that of their investment. Three partners run the venue between them and have other business interest’s which takes them away from the business. The venue would benefit from “branding” and a full time management focus from a private operator or major leisure company.
