The Bucks Head Tavern enjoys a prominent trading position on the main high street and is a visible trading location to capture passing trade as well as serving the local community.

The Opportunity

The business has been in our clients' hands for the last six years during which time it has traded successfully as a popular local bar with a strong loyal clientèle and following. Our clients currently run another public house and as a consequence they have the Bucks Head Tavern run under management. It is felt this is a strong opportunity for a partnership or husband and wife team to acquire a well established business that has significant trading potential if it was run under a hands on management basis. The business trades with 100% wet sales and is popular for live sport.

Staff

The business is run by our clients with the assistance of four part-time members of staff.
