Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular public house and restaurant business with guest accommodation in North Yorkshire. The business was established over 300 years ago and has been in our clients` careful ownership since 2010. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients` desire for a well-deserved retirement.

Our clients offer a range of services including a public bar with an extensive range of beers, wines and spirits, a restaurant area serving breakfasts, lunches and evening meals, as well as 6 en-suite letting rooms. The restaurant serves food throughout the day, there is a wide variety of fayre on the menus from full English breakfasts to T-bone steaks.

The letting rooms include double, twin and family rooms, all en-suite and situated on the ground floor, with private access to the large car park to the rear of the property. All the letting rooms have new showers, carpets and lighting. Last year the business had 1,200 overnight stays. We are advised there are no water rates and low rural relief rates

The property boasts private owners accommodation located on the first floor which comprises a lounge, new kitchen, bathroom and bedroom with new en-suite bathroom. Since our clients purchased the business they have refurbished and transformed the property, which is finished to a very high standard. The business has been awarded Trip Advisor Award of Excellence for the third year running.

The beer garden can also be used for camping hire. There is a large outside bar area, with a roofed area for shelter, enabling them to hold events outside, there is also two marquees to compliment the bar, as well as an outdoor grill to the side for barbeques. A vast array of catering equipment has recently been purchased, allowing our clients to hold three full wedding receptions on site, without the need to hire equipment.

Our clients have built two garden houses/chalets, both with twin bedrooms and there is planning permission in place to build a further two. The chalets have shared bathroom and toilet facilities, which are brand new.

More land has recently been acquired, taking the plot to 4 acres, some of which will be used in the village affordable housing programme, which has been put forward and is expected to be granted. Some land has been set aside to be used for camping and could be developed to host caravans, if required.

The business has built up an excellent reputation in the area for the high quality of fayre, accommodation and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with a lot of repeat trade, as well as word of mouth referrals.

We feel the turnover could be increased by obtaining planning consent to transform the rear field into a camping/caravan site or by extending the opening hours. A new owner could embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the business further. The business has an excellent website in place to promote the business, which could be adapted to include online booking facilities.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this thriving multi-faceted business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

This public house/restaurant with guest letting rooms occupies substantial two-storey premises in a prime trading location in North Yorkshire. The premises are situated within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park.
