Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this multi-faceted business, ideally located in Skelmersdale, Lancashire.

The large two-storey, detached public house, which incorporates a fish & chip shop with a noodle bar, a pizza takeaway and delivery business and a single storey detached bookmaker business. The combination of businesses generates an excellent turnover, with a good gross profit.

• The traditional local pub has a very loyal client base and is supported within the community and boasts poker nights on Monday and Tuesdays, a pool team on Thursdays and two football teams. The pub is very well known for showing all the football matches on Sky, BT and European channels. The pub offers a large open plan public bar area, which is fully air conditioned. The property is maintained to a very high standard throughout and benefits from outstanding three bedroom owners’ accommodation.

• The fish and chip shop opened to the public approximately 5 months ago after an expensive re-fit, which includes all brand new modern equipment. The fish and chip shop has proved very popular within the area, which includes deliveries. The noodle bar is incorporated into the fish and chip shop and is generating a healthy weekly taking around £8000.  This business offers a spacious open plan kitchen area, a rear preparation area, a potato preparation area and a store room.

• The pizza takeaway/delivery business has also proved very popular and has its own separate ground floor entrance, leading to a first floor seating area with approximately 24 covers. Approximately 70% of the turnover for the pizza business is derived from deliveries, which is further enhanced by takeaway and customers eating in.

• The detached bookmakers, which is set in a single storey detached property and was purposely built by our client is currently not operating as a business, but was achieving a turnover in the region of £30,000 per annum.

The businesses have built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the services offered, which has resulted in very loyal client bases, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

A new owner could embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the businesses. The public house is mainly based on wet trade, with limited breakfasts served, which could be expanded on.

We are advised that the businesses could be acquired separately on leasehold basis. Please see tenure section.
