Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this very well established public house. With Large 3 Double Bedroom Owners Accommodation,
This is run on an old Whitbread Laurel Lease, meaning that they are only tied in for their beer and lager sales, however for everything else it is the same as a freehouse, so offers great flexibility and improved profit margins.
The pub has been in the village for many years and has been run by the current owners for the past 12 years. They are now looking towards a well-earned retirement.
They are very much wet sale led, however they do provide a very popular Sunday lunch on the first Sunday of every month where they cater for up to 40 guests and they also do some food sales from Wednesday to Saturday. They also have a regular darts team and entertain other regular clubs to include, a shooting club, golf society, bridge team and knitting & crochet society.
The business is run very much as a lifestyle business, however there is great potential for the pub to be taken to the next level, particularly with more concentration on the food side of the business, together with longer hours, more advertising including social media and a website. There is also, a lot of housing development taking place nearby which can only add to the client base and turnover.
There is an extensive inventory of fixtures and fittings to include tables and chairs in both bar areas and much more.
An internal inspection is very highly recommended to appreciate the potential on offer.Location
