Pub overview

Flexible tenancy options available on this great community pub with the added bonus of additional first year support! If you are looking for a traditional tenancy or if you have a passion for cask ale and want to embrace the Lord Clyde's exciting development to a Cask & craft beer offer style this pub could be for you.

This is a great community local pub situated on the main high street in Kimberley. It is perfectly located to benefit from a high level of passing trade along the High Street and with Sainsbury's opposite this presents a great opportunity for good daytime trade. The Clyde is well supported locally and has a great reputation for cask ale with the current landlord offering up to 8 different cask ales.

We are looking for an enthusiastic local operator or couple with a passion for cask ale. We are keen to further develop the Clyde with both an internal and external refurbishment and keen to work with a new operator to create a stronger traditional cask ale pub and would also expect the new operator to look to further develop a good traditional pub food menu.

The Clyde is a one-bar operation with a fantastic and well presented external drinking area. The kitchen is compact but well positioned to service the main trading area.

“ Roaring log fires, a cosy atmosphere, a great reputation for cask ale and good service, the Lord Clyde is a great example of a traditional British pub with plenty of opportunity to develop the business both with food and further development of the cask ale opportunity. We are looking to refurbish this pub in the immediate future and further build on the success of the cask ale offer. ”
