Business Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well established and popular traditional public house in Hendre, just outside Mold in Flintshire. The business was established in the 1700s and has been in our clients` careful ownership since 1997. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients` desire for a well-earned retirement. The business is open one afternoon and 7 evenings per week, generating a turnover in the region of £43,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 60%.
Our clients offer a wide variety of beverages including beer, ales, wine and spirits, as well as soft drinks and juices. The business has an excellent reputation within the area for the friendly and wonderful atmosphere offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with a vast amount of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals.
This is also a wonderful investment property in a stunning location offering the opportunity to develop the premises into a guest house/bed and breakfast business as our clients already have the planning permission to do so. The plans offers new owners the option to build new living accommodation, extend the number of letting rooms to 7 and to expand the restaurant/kitchen. The plans are available upon viewing the property. We are advised that a new central heating system has been installed.
The property is set on just under 2 acres of land and includes a ¾ acre field on the land, which has the potential to be used for alternative use such as events and gatherings or an investment opportunity as a large property including land.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, as the public house is currently run at a pace to suit our clients. A new owner could also introduce food sales as the business currently only does wet sales. The public house would benefit from a small marketing campaign to highlight the business and services offered. A website for the business could also be established to promote the business. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
