The inn draws much business from the surrounding conurbations with a huge popularity for families and its dining options.

Our clients purchased the business some nine years ago and have since worked hard to transform both the building and the business into the solid and profitable business it now is. Thanks to this hard work the business enjoys an excellent reputation as a quality family and private dining experience. Trading figures to January 2016 show a turnover of 570,841 (incl. VAT) with a good net profit. The business is currently run with the assistance of two managers with the owners occupying a less hands on role. There is no doubt that new and enthusiastic owners preferably with one having catering experience should be able to maintain these figures and by streamlining the business substantially increase both turnover and profit.

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