Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

The Royal Oak occupies substantial 2-storey premises ideally located on the outskirts of Newark-on-Trent town centre, Nottinghamshire. The premises are surrounded by a variety of complementary shops and businesses and benefit from private parking for owner and residents at the rear. The business is located directly across from the medieval Newark Castle, which lies on the banks of the River Trent and attracts many tourists and visitors to the area. There are regular bus services and the railway station is within easy walking distance. The business boasts easy access to the A1 and A46, and the town centre shops and facilities are just a few minutes away. Newark-on-Trent is a small market town, which grew up around the castle and market place, and posseses many historic buildings. The area is a popular place in which to live and work due to the excellent transport links across the region. Mansfield is approximately 19 miles west, while Nottingham lies approximately 20 miles away.

Business History
Preferred Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this popular public house, which was established in 1700 and has been in our client's careful hands since 2006. The business is only now offered to the market due to our client's wish to retire. The premises are well-equipped to suit the trade with a lounge bar, main bar, central bar servery, dining/function room and commercial kitchen. The business has an excellent reputation and enjoys a loyal customer base. The premises boast a 2-bedroom manager's flat along with 5-bedroom owners' accommodation with spacious lounge, kitchen and bathroom. The public house benefits from being free of tie and has a wet/dry split of 95% to 5%. The business trades all year round and generates a turnover in the region of 104,000 per annum with a gross profit of 58%. We feel this could be further increased by reinstating food as this is currently not available. The 5 owners' bedrooms have been recently refurbished and are now used for letting, as there are no hotels or guest houses in the immediate area. The letting accommodation could be further improved by providing en-suite facilities if required. This is an ideal opportunity to acquire an already popular public house with 2-bedroom manager's flat and 5-bedroom owners'/letting accommodation and huge scope for future development. Early negotiations with Preferred Commercial must come highly recommended.
