The business is offered for sale as a lease assignment with approximately 6 years remaining of the Punch Taverns full repairing and insuring, renewable agreement. We are advised that the inn is 'part tied' to draught beers, bottle beers and ciders. We are informed that the rent is currently circa £82,000 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 payable TBC.
Our vendor client operates this thriving business as a 'sole trader' on a full time basis with the assistance of a selection of full time and part time/casual staff. Trade is currently derived from approximately 60% wet, 35% food and 5% accommodation sales and whilst emulating the existing highly successful business model; there is still tremendous potential for a new full time hands-on owner operator partnership to increase sales and profitability by implementing a strategic marketing campaign to utilise the premises for private parties, wakes and functions etc and also focussing on online booking agents to promote the letting accommodation. In addition there is further potential to facilitate 'early doors' to provide the high level of passing trade breakfast and tea/coffee etc; all of which would have an incredible positive impact on the turnover and profits. Advised sales for YE January 2016 are circa £860,000 (incl. VAT).
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 £1,000,000 (incl. VAT).
