Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market The Railway Hotel. Our client has owned the business since 2015, but is now looking to sell the pub due to the desire to focus on other business interests. This is a genuine reason for sale, and is not to be missed.
The business runs as a popular village pub selling a range of world wines and cask ales. The pub also operates as a restaurant and guest house. This is a 5 bedroomed guest house with owner’s accommodation. The business has been run to an exception standard and the business overall has a great reputation with the locals and many tourists.
The business currently generates an advised turnover of around £250,000 per annum with a gross profit of 65%. The turnover is generated from the pub, restaurant, guest rooms and the rental income of the hair salon.
The business is being sold as a pub and restaurant with guest room accommodation. There is also a hair salon next door which is leased out, the hair salon business is not included in the sale. The purchaser will simply take over the freehold of the property. We are advised the current income from the tenant is £12,000 per annum.
This pub is a central focus in the village as our client helps host many of the town events. There are street parties, bike rides, village activities and more. Information on up and coming events are advertised on The Railways Facebook page. The page has over 600 followers which are constantly updated with new menus, photos and promotional offers.
The restaurant sells a range of tasty foods. They sell pub classics such as Sunday roasts, sandwiches, pizza’s, steaks, fish dishes and much more. The food is done to a high standard and this is not just a regular village pub/restaurant. Our client puts in a lot of attention to detail and this shows in the overall business.
The guest rooms are currently advertised on sites such as booking.com. The new owner should look to set up a website for the pub where they can promote all of the business and allow for an online booking system for the restaurant, parties and guest rooms. Promoting the business more should allow for more custom.
This is the perfect venue for weddings and other functions. The purchaser could also advertise at local weddings fayres. An outside catering service could also complement this side of the business. This is an affluent and upmarket pub that would be perfect for these arms of business.
The business is currently ran by a manager and the staff. This would be a fantastic opportunity for a husband and wife team with experience in the trade; looking for a hands on opportunity.
This is an outstanding business and Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing in order to take in the full potential of this business.
