Tenure: Leasehold

An excellent opportunity to purchase a well-known public house and café, which occupies a prominent trading position in Crawley, West Sussex.

Pelham Buckle occupies a commanding position on a busy main road within a densely populated area of residential and commercial dwellings. The business attracts both regular local and passing trade throughout the day, especially at breakfast and lunch times.

The business is Free of Tie.

Having served the locality for many years, and been under the same ownership since 2002, the business has forged strong relationships with the community and boasts an extensive and loyal customer base.

The substantial and imposing detached property provides welcoming accommodation and a homely environment. The bar is neatly presented with traditional pub furniture and provides an array of various sports shown on TV throughout the week.

Pelham Buckle is a profitable business and operates with a 50/50 split on wet sales and income from the café business. The cafe was started by our client a few years ago and operates with 32 covers in a side extension. The business would ideally suit an energetic and enthusiastic owner to enhance the overall profitability.

This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a long established business with genuine potential and viewing is therefore recommended.
