Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this long established free of tie public house business in Flint, Clwyd. The business was established in 1910 and has been in our client’s careful hands since 1997. The business is only now being offered to the market due to our clients` desire to take a well-deserved retirement. The business is open 7 days a week and generates a turnover in the region of £102,000 per annum with a gross profit of approximately 56%.
Tradesman Arms is a long established free of tie public house, with a large loyal customer base. The public house is very popular and offers a wide range of drinks, the business is well equipped with high quality fixture and fittings, and has traditional styling. The exterior of the building has white and black beam Tudor styling, which stands out and draws attention. The owner’s accommodation is very spacious and is finished to a high standard.
We believe the business has huge potential to be expanded, we are advised that the attic space could be converted into 5 spacious single bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, which would be perfect for letting. The second floor also has 4 large double bedrooms which also could be used for letting accommodation, converting the attic and opening the rooms for letting could increase the turnover significantly.
The public house currently does not offer food, but we feel the ground floor bedroom could be converted into a kitchen subject to planning. By offering food the business would draw in more visitors and could benefit the business greatly. Additionally, previously there has been planning permission to build two houses on the land where the car park current sits but the plans have since lapsed. This property is a prime development opportunity.
We have been advised that our client has had verbal confirmation that the council would be willing to grant permission for change of use on the property.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this long-established business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
