Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market The 19th Hole. This pub was taken over by our clients in 2003 who are now looking to sell the business due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement. This is a brilliant profitable pub with loyal repeat trade.
The pub is located in a highly populated village (some 5000 residents) and receives much of its trade from the locals. The current turnover for the business is approximately £136,000 per annum with a gross profit of 55%.
This turnover is fantastic however we feel this could be increased in several ways, such as increasing opening hours. The premise has a large function and restaurant area which is used for serving food. The function room could be promoted more in the village to boost party trade. The business does receive regular bookings for business meetings, weddings, funerals, Sunday lunches, curry nights and could benefit from more private functions.
The business has a great sized kitchen which is used by the restaurant and for an outside catering service. The pub also offers outside bar equipment which generates an extra income. This is mainly used by the local community halls. The new owner should look to set up a website to advertise the business and all the services available. This will attract trade from more further afield.
In the area there is planning permission sought for 160 houses towards the back of the pub. There is also another 140 houses to be built around the village. This will be brilliant for the pub as it is a chance to boost the custom and therefore increase turnover.
Sited midway between large towns makes it highly attractive to be developed as destination venue.
Above the pub is the owner’s accommodation which would be perfect for a purchaser looking to relocate to the area. The accommodation does currently have 1 bedroom however there is space to increase this.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a purchaser looking to buy a successful profitable pub. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
