Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Royal Oak occupies substantial two-storey premises and is ideally located in a prime trading location in the village of Worleston, Cheshire. The public house and restaurant is located on the main road through the village, therefore benefitting from a large amount of footfall and passing trade. The business boasts free parking with three car parks to the sides of the property. The public house is mainly surrounded by residential properties from which the business draws much trade.

Worleston is a village in Cheshire East and lies 2 miles north of Nantwich and 3 miles west of Crewe. The civil parish includes the settlements of Beambridge, Rease Heath, Mile End and Rookery, with a population of just over 400 residents. Amenities within the village include a grocery store, a primary school and a churches. The area is well served by the A-road system with the A530 being within easy driving distance of the property, which links to the vast A-road and motorway networks. Chester is approximately 21 miles away and Congleton is 23 miles away.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular public house and restaurant business in Worleston, Cheshire. The property is a timber-framed building dating originally from the 1730s and has been in our clients` careful ownership since 1999.

Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients` desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business is open 7 days per week and generated a turnover in the region of 143,000 as of 2017 accounts, with a reported gross profit of approximately 50%.

The main source of income is currently 60% wet sales and 40% food sales. The business currently offers a wide range of beers, wines and spirits and also boasts a large 60 cover restaurant area, serving traditional English pub food.

The Royal Oak has earned an enviable reputation in the area and boasts a loyal customer base, benefiting from much word of mouth referrals and a vast amount of repeat trade. The business benefits from spacious three bedroom owners` accommodation, which has been extremely well maintained and decorated to a very high standard as well as a one bedroom self-contained flat.

We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours. The business would also benefit from a small marketing campaign to promote the business and the services offered. The business would also benefit from the launch of a website to advertise the restaurant side of the business with perhaps offering a menu of the food available and online booking facilities.

A new owner could also let out the one-bedroom flat to generate further income. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already popular and thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
