A COSY PUB, CLOSE TO THE CENTRE OF RIPON
The beautifully presented Golden Lion at Ripon was fully refurbished in 2021 and offers a modern, yet traditional cosy feel. The pub is known for its quality cask ale, its stunning, partially covered, enclosed beer garden and links to the local community. The new operator will need to grow the business, by further strengthening ties to the community, building the food offer, establishing a rhythm of the week to grow sales. The pub is predominately wet led, only serving Sunday Lunches, although there is opportunity to grow the food business further throughout the week.
Ripon is a cathedral city in North Yorkshire. The city is located at the confluence of two tributaries of the River Ure, the Laver and Skell. Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, the city is noted for its main feature, Ripon Cathedral, which is architecturally significant, as well as the Ripon Racecourse and other features such as its market. The Golden Lion is located a short walk from the city centre and in a residential area.

This lovely pub would ideally suit a local owner operator/couple, who can build on the existing rhythm of the week and cask ale quality. As the pub is currently only serving food on Sundays, the ability to serve a basic pub menu throughout the week would be an advantage to help build upon the existing trade and further establish this pub is this attractive city.
