Pub overview


Following an extensive refurbishment in 2016, we require a new operator to take the business to new heights. The Museum is located in a popular residential area, on the western edge of Carlisle. The Pub has a good food offering which is in a family friendly dining area. This dining area is separated from the main bar area where sport on TV is a big attraction, with various well positioned screens. Pub games are also available, for individuals or teams to enjoy.
A big attraction for the locals, is the weekly quiz which is well supported. An area for growth at the Museum, would be a regular weekend entertainment program and the continuation and improvement of the food offering
Please note, we are offering stepped rent for a new operator. This would be in place for the first six months:
Months 1-3 - £20,000
Months 4-6 - £24,000
Month 6 onwards - £28,000

The Museum is open plan throughout with only the bar being separated by a glass door. There is a beer garden area to the rear along with a large car park.

“ I am on the lookout for a new operator for this community focused site. There is great scope to improve at the Museum and with my support to improve the current food offering and implementation of an entertainment program would really add to the Pub. We invested a significant sum of money into the Pub in 2016, so this site is in great order and ready to go. Please, get in touch if you feel you have the vision and skills to drive this business forward ”
