Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this superb traditional English county pub. The Royal Oak Inn is over 250 years old and has been successfully run by our client for the last ten years, with the business coming to the market as our client looks towards a well deserved retirement.

The Royal Oak is in a picturesque location and is very well supported by the local community. The business benefits from being Free of Tie and revenue is currently derived from 100% wet sales serving fine wines and good beer. The business reports a turnover of 47,000 as of 2015 accounts, gross profit is around 56%.

The pub is very charismatic and very well presented with over 100,000 spent on renovations by the current owner. With many charming features including beamed ceilings and wood burning stoves. The business boasts a commercial grade kitchen and seating for around 20-30.

The Royal Oak has previously served home-made traditional fayre and we would encourage any new owner to consider reinstating the dry sales and extending opening hours to further income. With advertising and a modest marketing campaign targeting the lucrative tourist trade we believe the pub can become a thriving destination pub/eatery due to its superb location.

The pub sits within substantial grounds with good parking and lovely beer garden for the summer months and potential to expand the building if required and subject to planning permissions.

The business is complete with immaculately presented owner's accommodation, making this an ideal acquisition for a couple or family looking for a life style change in this lovely desirable location.

The business is located in the idyllic village of Moorhouse, on the outskirts of the city of Carlisle.

The Royal Oak Inn occupies a prominent position within the heart of the community and is situated on the main thoroughfare B5307 running through the village. The rear of the pub opens up onto a large car park and lovely grassed beer garden with stunning Cumbrian countryside beyond.

The area is rich in history, with Carlisle attracting thousands of visitors each year and the famous Lake District on the doorstep. The area is easily accessible from the A689 and M6 and national motorway network beyond.
