GENERAL REMARKS
The business is offered for sale as a lease assignment with approximately 3 years remaining of the Trust Inns 3 year rolling/perpetual, 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 38,000 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 clients operate this superb business as a 'husband and wife' team on a full time basis with the assistance of 4 full time and 5 part time/casual staff. Trade is currently derived from approximately 75% wet and 25% food sales and whilst emulating the current successful business model; there is still immense potential for a new full time hands-on owner operator partnership with previous experience of running a catering orientated operation to take the business to the next level by exploiting the obvious food potential to be found here. There are many additional areas of potential to increase sales and profitability by implementing a strategic marketing campaign to utilise the premises for private parties, wakes and functions etc which would have a direct positive effect on the turnover and profits. Advised current sales circa 330,000 (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 400,000 (incl. VAT).

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