Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular public house and restaurant business in Worleston, Cheshire. The property is a timber-framed building dating originally from the 1730s and has been in our clients` careful ownership since 1999. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients` desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business is open 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £260,000 per annum, with a reported gross profit of approximately 50%.
The main source of income is currently 60% wet sales and 40% food sales. The business currently offers a wide range of beers, wines and spirits and also boasts a large 60 cover restaurant area, serving traditional English pub food. The Royal Oak has earned an enviable reputation in the area and boasts a loyal customer base, benefiting from much word of mouth referrals and a vast amount of repeat trade. The business benefits from spacious three bedroom owners` accommodation, which has been extremely well maintained and decorated to a very high standard, as well as a one bedroom self-contained flat and two bed mobile home.
We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours. The business would also benefit from a small marketing campaign to promote the business and the services offered. The business would also benefit from the launch of a website to advertise the restaurant side of the business with perhaps offering a menu of the food available and online booking facilities. A new owner could also let out the one-bedroom flat and 2 bedroom mobile home to generate further income. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already popular and thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
The Royal Oak occupies substantial two-storey premises and is ideally located in a prime trading location in the village of Worleston, Cheshire. The public house and restaurant is located on the main road through the village, therefore benefitting from a large amount of footfall and passing trade. The business boasts free parking with three car parks to the sides of the property. The public house is mainly surrounded by residential properties from which the business draws much trade.
