We are advised that the inn is partially tied to draught beers ONLY. We are informed that the rent is currently £40,000 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.

THE BUSINESS

Our vendor client operates this excellent business on a 'hands-off' basis with the assistance of 3 full time and 4 part time/casual staff.
Trade is currently derived from circa 25% wet, 25% food and 50% lettings sales, thereby providing immense scope for a new 'full time' hands-on owner operator partnership with previous experience of running a food/lettings orientated operation enabling them to take this business to the next level by exploiting the tremendous food potential that is to be found here.
This is an extremely rare and outstanding 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 £180,000 (incl. VAT). This delightful bar/restaurant is a well-established and successful business and in our opinion with the above areas of potential we would quite easily expect a fully committed operator to achieve a turnover well in excess of £250,000 (incl. VAT).
