The village has easy access to local schooling and all main shopping facilities whilst being only a short distance from the beautiful Lancashire coastline.

Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this stunning 16th century public house which was established in 1554 and has been in the capable hands of our client for the previous 3 years. The only reason this opportunity is being offered to the market is due to our client's desire to concentrate on their other business interests. Since owning the business our clients have invested a substantial amount of money on upgrading the business premises to the point that they are now in full walk-in condition for any prospective purchaser. We are advised of a turnover of 650,000 which is derived from the sales of beers, wines and spirits and an extremely popular food sales side to the business.

The business has an outstanding reputation and lies at the heart of the local community and is supported by numerous groups including the Slyne Bowling Club and Vale of Lane RUFC and is often used as a meeting venue for groups such as the local Rotary club. The premises represent an ideal venue for family celebrations and are frequently used for occasions such as Christenings and Funerals. This is an outstanding opportunity to purchase a thriving business presented to the highest of standards and would ideally suit a partnership looking for a lifestyle change opportunity, in one of the most picturesque areas of the country. As such early viewing is highly recommended as this business is not to be missed.
