Business Description

The Dearnesman is a large community pub situated on the main road leading out of the town of Wath-upon-Dean towards Barnsley. If you are an enthusiastic operator looking to run a flexible and unique business in the Rotherham area then this could be the perfect business for you.


The pub has a large trading area with good seating for dining and a carvery unit is available for use in the lounge. There is a games area with pool table and a darts board which attracts several teams. There is a second room which could be used as a function room which contains an indoor children’s play area. In addition there is a large catering kitchen. Outside there is another children’s play area and a large car park.

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


Wath-upon-Dearne is centred on Montgomery Square, where the town's main shops, library and bus station are located. Immediately west is the All Saints Church, the Montgomery Hall and the Dearne Valley College campus. The area is residential consisting of a mixture of council and privately owned housing.

The pub currently appeals to the local community and pool and darts teams. It holds several charity events throughout the year. A value for money food offer would attract new customers and is key to growing weekday trade.


The Dearnesman currently trades at approximately £120,000 per annum with just over 16% coming from food sales. The pub has the potential to trade at up to £200,000 per annum.

The successful operator will be someone who is willing to work with, and become part of, the local community. They will also need to make the pub a focal point for events and sporting teams. Experience of working in the pub industry is not required but a strong commercial awareness and business acumen is crucial for you to succeed.
