Pub overview

A thriving established business, which we are INVESTING in!

The Eldon is located on the outskirts of Leeds City centre and is next to several University buildings and student accommodation. We have an investment planned to refurbish this Pub and would like the new operator to be involved.
The Pub greatly benefits from a strong local trade as well as students. There is already a great food offer in place and the Eldon is known as a great venue for watching Sky & BT sports on TV. The site is a single room operation and has approximately forty five food covers. The local population is predominately made up of 18-24 year olds (within 0.3 mile radius) so appealing to young people and perhaps offering student deals will be vital. The site also benefits from plenty of passers by, so there is the potential to be busy all day and into the evening

This is an easy to run single bar operation with a planned refurbishment once we have recruited our new operator. There is a small patio/smoking area to the rear of the pub.
