Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this traditional public house with small general store which has been established for many years and has been in the careful hands of our clients since 2006. Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to a desire to move abroad. Since our clients took ownership of the business they have run the business at a pace that suits their lifestyle, meaning that there is massive scope for a new hands on owner operator to further develop the business. The business also offers a small village store which sells a range of general items such as newspapers milk, bread, eggs and butter etc. There is huge scope to increase turnover by expanding the village store side of the business, as planning permission has been granted to integrate a single storey shop front onto the premises, generating ample retail space of approximately 35.9 sq metres to take advantage of. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. The public house runs a number of skittle teams and dart teams which proves popular with new and regular customers. 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.
