Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular public house and restaurant with guest rooms in East Knighton, Dorset. This long established business has been in our client`s careful ownership since 2012 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client`s other business interests. The business operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £875,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 65%.
Our client offers a wide selection of beverages from local ales to fine lagers, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, as well as a large selection of choice wines. The business also boasts a large restaurant area and our client is very proud to use suppliers from Dorset, using only the finest high quality ingredients, with food being served all day. Our client also prides himself on their famous Sunday carvery.
The business also offers nine guest letting rooms, which range from single bedrooms to family rooms, all of which have en-suite bathrooms or showers, Sky TV, free WiFi and tea/coffee making facilities. Externally the property offers a children`s play area, which has recently been installed at a cost of £25,000 and has been safety tested.
There is a quality web site in place which offers more information about the business and on-line booking facilities. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, possibly a husband and wife team, to take this well-established and profitable business with immense scope for growth to the next level; therefore early discussions with Hilton Smythe must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
