Business History

Meridian Business Sales are privileged to offer to the market this unique public house with 6 letting bedrooms and a detached owners' house. The public house which has 40 covers and is free of tie has been established for over 50 years, it has been in the careful hands of our clients for the past 16 years. The only reason this rare opportunity is being offered to the market is due to our clients pending retirement. During our clients stewardship they have continually improved the business, however there is massive scope for a new owner to develop the business further. Our clients advise us that the annual turnover is in the region of 80,000 with a mix of 40% wet sales, 40% food sales and 20% from the letting rooms. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and as such enjoys a high level of regular and repeat trade. It also benefits from a good size beer garden and skittle alley which could be used as a function room or as additional dining space. The spacious 2 bedroom detached owners accommodation is just a short walk across the garden. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is strongly advised as businesses of this calibre rarely stay on the market for long.
