Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this superb freehold, free of tie public house that has been established since c1860 and has been in the capable hands of our client for the past 12 years. The only reason this excellent opportunity is being made available is due to our clients desire to take well deserved retirement. Since owning the business our clients have continued to invest time and money on the premises including updating the decor to the point that they are in full walk-in condition for any prospective purchaser. We are advised of an annual turnover of 82,244 with good gross profits which is derived from 100% wet sales. The business lies at the heart of the local community and is a popular meeting place for many local organisations including the Labour Party, Coors Brewery, the allotment society and the local pool league. The business is also supported locally by 2 pool teams and a regular ladies and gents darts team in addition to being known throughout the local area as a popular live music venue. The business also has great potential for an increase on turnover as it is run at a pace to suit our clients lifestyle, the addition of longer trading hours and the introduction of bed and breakfast to the business could easily be implemented. Due to the size of this freehold property there is also the possibility to further extend the business premises (STPP). This is an outstanding opportunity to purchase a long established and thriving business and as such early viewing is highly recommended.
