If you’re thinking of taking on a pub tenancy in the county of Cheshire, whether in a busy town, the suburbs or in a rural setting, we’ve got some great opportunities for you.

Cheshire is one of the most prosperous parts of the UK, and boasts The Sunday Times’ best place to live in the North West: Knutsford. Statistically, the cost of living is lower than in some prime areas of London, whereas earnings are higher than average for this part of the country.

Of course, the ‘Golden Triangle’ with its three corners on Wilmslow, Alderley Edge and Prestbury, may have something to do with this. Cheshire has long been known for attracting footballers, celebrities and entrepreneurs to its attractive towns and villages.

This is all good for business if you want to run a pub in this county.

What’s Going For Cheshire?

With 9,000 Grade I listed buildings, largely unspoilt countryside, and its industrial heritage Cheshire certainly provides a great backdrop to live and work. Its’ biggest city, the Roman walled county town of Chester, is unique for its ‘Black and White Revival’ architecture. This style recreated Tudor style buildings in the 19th century, which renowned art historian Nikolaus Pevsner described it as Cheshire’s “speciality.”

Its 13th century buildings and castles also attract visitors to area. Chester benefits from visitors throughout the year, providing a significant boost to the local economy. This is something pub tenants and lessees can especially benefit from if their premises are situated near popular visitor destinations; attracting visitors and residents alike.

Cheshire’s villages and rural setting make it home to a substantial dairy industry that produces it’s world famous Cheshire Cheese. This idyllic countryside is also a favourite for visitors, providing village and country pubs with additional footfall during the summer months and other times of year.

Cheshire has also continued to hang onto some industry. Towns such as Crewe once had the British railway industry on its doorstep and is now home to the world famous Bentley car factory. The county is also the biggest producer of rock salt in the country, with the Romans first exploiting this natural resource. Salt production is focused around Middlewich and provides employment for the local community. 

The University of Cheshire attracts students nationally and globally, and career opportunities in nearby Manchester and Liverpool mean that some graduates make Cheshire their home. Bordering Greater Manchester, Merseyside and the Peak District, Cheshire is a county that punches above its weight and offers real potential for pub tenants and lessees interested in taking on a new pub.
