Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular public house in the affluent town of Knutsford in Cheshire.
The business was established in 1850 and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2008. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £160,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 46%.
Our client offers a wide variety of alcoholic beverages including beers, lagers, wines and spirits, as well as a small selection of bar snacks. The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
The property is very well maintained and is characterised by a Fisherman’s Corner, which is decorated with a multitude of photographs depicting the ones that didn’t get away. The property further benefits from 3 bedroom owners accommodation to the first floor. The public house is well supported within the community and boasts its own angling club.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by introducing a food menu. The business would also benefit from a small marketing campaign to highlight the business and services offered. A new owner could also introduce a website to promote the business.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already popular business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
