Monday - Saturday - 11.00am - 11.00pm

The current opening hours are as above.

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 1 year remaining of the original Wellington Pub Company full repairing and insuring, renewable agreement. We are advised that the inn is FREE OF TIE. We are informed that the rent is currently 34,500 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 heating (no services seen or tested). Business rates payable are advised as currently being circa 18,000 per annum.

Our vendor clients operate this excellent business as a 'husband and wife' team on a full time and part time basis respectively with the assistance of 3 part time members of staff.

Trade is currently derived from 100% wet sales, thereby offering immense scope for a new hands-on owner operator partnership to emulate the current operating model but at the same time to take this business to even greater heights by introducing a decent food offering and by also focussing on a strategic marketing campaign to promote the premises for functions, private parties and wakes etc.
This is an exciting opportunity for those seeking a lifestyle change or an alternative career from the stress and strife of the City or even as an additional income stream whilst commuting. Advised current turnover is circa 156,000 (incl. VAT).

This delightful inn is a well-established and successful business and in our opinion with the above areas of potential we would quite easily expect a fully focussed and fully committed full time hands-on operator to achieve a turnover well in excess of 250,000 (incl. VAT).

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