Pub overview

Well sought after, picturesque pub with a good trading history and fantastic potential for the right entrepreneur.

A fantastic opportunity has become available. This much loved and very busy food destination site has traded extremely well for the last 10 years. It sits on a fantastic location just 5 miles out of Doncaster town centre and close to the busy villages of Campsall, Owston, Carcroft Woodlands and Askern Town.

Benefitting from a half million pound investment 4 years ago and a small sparkle spend to refresh the décor in 2015 the pub is still in excellent condition and offers a perfect business opportunity for someone who wants to live in an area with a country feel but with the convenience of a large town nearby.

With over two hundred Sunday lunches served each week and a very busy day time food offer there is still an opportunity not only to build on evening food but functions and special events such as weddings, birthdays and entertainment nights.

This is an ideal business for an operator who has experience in good value, good quality food. The living accommodation would make a good family home.

Despite the pubs size there is a single, easy to use bar operation which serves 5 defined trade areas including dining and bar areas. The full commercial trade kitchen and preparation areas serve the pubs 120 covers. Whilst the large function room caters for up to 200 people and is currently used for weddings, funerals, private parties and conferences. The well kept beer gardens attract a busy summer time trade, and the large car park of over 60 spaces enables this pub to trade on a destination basis. There is a separate staff toilet and changing area with access to the bar and function room.

With a fantastic kerb appeal for this large footprint building and lying on the main aerterial road of the A19 York to Doncaster. The pub trades on a destination food basis, while the large function room is popular for weddings, funerals and private parties alike. ”
