GENERAL REMARKS
The property and business are being offered for sale freehold (although we have not had sight of the title deeds). We are advised that the inn benefits from all mains services and uses gas fired central heating (services not tested). Business rates payable are advised as being 9,815 per annum.

THE BUSINESS
Our vendor clients, in situ since 2008, operate this successful business as a husband and wife team on a 'part time' basis with the assistance of 8 full time and a pool of 11 part time/casual members of staff.
Trade is currently derived from circa 60% wet and 40% food sales, thereby providing immense scope for a new operator partnership with previous experience of running a catering/events orientated operation to take this business to even greater heights by focussing on a strategic and extensive marketing campaign to further promote the premises for weddings, private functions and wakes etc, for which there is great demand within the area.
Advised turnover for YE March 2016 circa 1,014,000 (incl. VAT). This truly is an incredible opportunity for either an owner operator to continue to build the business or for a commercial investor to enhance their existing portfolio.
This delightful village inn is an extremely well-established and highly successful business and in our opinion with the above areas of potential we would quite easily expect a fully focussed and fully committed operator to achieve a turnover well in excess of 1,250,000 (incl. VAT) per annum.
The asking price reflects the current trading foundation, the location and quality of fixtures and fitting, and of course not forgetting that this is an extremely substantial freehold property.
