Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this superb public house which has been established for many centuries and has been in the careful hands of our clients for the last 14 years. Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to a desire to take well deserved retirement. Since our clients took ownership of the business they have invested time and money in the business and premises to the point where it is in full walk in condition. Our clients inform us that annual turnover currently runs at £258,000 which is derived from the sale of a selection of beers, wines and spirits in addition to light bar snacks as well as offering a popular hot & cold food menu. The business trades completely free of any brewery tie which is a rarity and as such the profit margins are above industry standards. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business, which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this superb business is not to be missed.
