Business Description
Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market The Cat & Fiddle pub, purchased by our client in the early 2000 and offered for sale due to our clients wish to retire.

This is a true example of a traditional community led pub with the history and characteristics of an 18th century building. The well know business is known for its fine range of beers, lagers and wine to its freshly home cooked menu.

Currently the business has been run by our clients who had previously concentrated on other business interests and let staff run the operation. They are working on building back up the reputation for food which currently only stands at 20% of the weekly takings. They had plans drawn up to redevelop the entire building and land which will be available to view by any prospective buyer.

A new refurbishment programme has begun including the repainting of the pub front and general building upgrades. There is a separate bedsit to the left side of the pub as well as 4 bedrooms on the first-floor accommodation which is currently being rented out.

The long lease will ensure any new operator can see the benefits of any initial investment to help return the business to its former glory. The current accommodation could easily be used a guest accommodation or family accommodation if required.

Previous food counted for ⅓ of the weekly turnover.

No current website.

Full handover period offered to the market.
