TRADING & LICENSING
We are advised that the business trades with the benefit of the Premises Licence (not seen) which permits the sale of alcohol during the hours of:
Monday - Sunday - 11.00am - Midnight
The current opening hours are as follows:
Monday - Sunday - Midday - 11.00pm
NB. Important. Prospective purchasers wishing to continue to operate the public house should ensure that they gain the APLH Qualification in readiness for their intended operation of the Public House.
The business is offered for sale as a lease assignment with approximately 7 years remaining of the Enterprise Inns full repairing and insuring, renewable agreement. We are advised that the inn is 'part tied' to draught beers and bottle beers ONLY. We are informed that the rent is currently circa £39,000 per annum. We are advised that at the end of the term, the Lease (not seen by Guy Simmonds) should be renewable with no further premium - subject to the provision of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954. We are advised that the inn benefits from all mains services and uses gas fired central heating (no services seen or tested). Business rates are advised as being circa £16,000 per annum.
Our vendor client operates this excellent business as a 'sole trader' on a 'hands-off' basis with the assistance of 3 part time members of staff.
Trade is currently derived from 100% wet sales. Whilst emulating the current business model; there is still immense potential for a new full time hands-on owner operator partnership with previous experience of running a food orientated operation enabling them to take this business to the next level by exploiting the obvious food potential that is to be found here.
There are many additional areas of potential to increase sales and profitability by implementing a strategic marketing campaign to utilise the premises for private parties, wakes and functions etc and by facilitating early opening for breakfasts and tea/coffee.
Advised current sales are circa £180,000 (incl. VAT). This popular inn is a well-established business and in our opinion with the above areas of potential we would quite easily expect fully focussed and fully committed operators to achieve a turnover well in excess of £250,000 (incl. VAT).
Accounting information will be made available to interested parties after viewing.
