Hilton Smythe would like to welcome to the market this delightful village public house in North Yorkshire. This old established business has been in our clients ownership for the past 2 years, only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients well deserved retirement.
The business is a traditional country inn with modern accommodation and is renowned for its outstanding homemade food, which include A-la-Carte menu, bar meals and chef specials, all prepared from locally sourced suppliers and cooked to order. The business generates a turnover in the region of £182,000 with a good gross profit. The business draws its trade from the many loyal locals as well as travellers to both the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors.
The public house has a quoits team, which competes in the local quoits league, as well as a domino team. The business also holds monthly theme nights which include curry night, Chinese night and Burns night. The business benefits from four spacious and well appointed guest rooms, all of which are en-suite with tea/coffee making facilities, flat screen TV’s and free Wi-Fi, as well as one bedroom owners accommodation.
The business already has a website in place to advertise the food and services offered, although we feel turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, possibly a chef and partner, to take this thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
This popular public house/bed and breakfast/restaurant is located in the very beautiful North Yorkshire.
