The inn is offered for sale freehold although we have not had sight of the title deeds. We are advised that the business benefits from the provisions of all mains services and gas central heating (no services tested). Business rates are advised as being TBC.


Our vendor clients purchased this business some 11 months ago whilst owning another public house directly opposite this one. They have found themselves unable to dedicate enough time to both businesses and so have decided to sell both properties and retire. They started trading some 10 months ago and refurbished the premises at that time. They have built a steady and loyal trade seeing business increase week on week. Working on an average of 10 months business, we are advised the trading figures to June 2013 are expected to be circa 150,000 inclusive VAT from a 100% wet trade. There is no reason why new and enthusiastic owners should not be able to match or even improve upon these figures.

Accounting information will be made available to interested parties after viewing.
