Moor Top

172 Heaton Moor Road, Heaton Moor, Stockport, Cheshire, SK4 4DU


The Moor Top at Heaton Moor is an exciting opportunity for an experienced pub manager to become a Hive franchisee. We will be completely refurbishing the pub to ensure it is a great community pub, with a great food offer. Live TV sport, pubs, entertainment, and events will be at the heart of the offer. The refurbishment will see more than £500,000 spent on the pub, with the kerb appeal greatly improved. As with all Hive pubs, there will be a wonderful garden, with covered pergola and plenty of seating options and there will be high impact signage, new lighting, and planting. The internal space will also benefit from the refurbishment. The pub will be zoned to allow for specific dining and casual drinking areas, as well as a dedicated sports zone with Pool and Darts. TV screens will be strategically placed to not dominate the pub but offer the best viewing experience.,


Heaton Moor is a suburb of Stockport, Greater Manchester. Within the boundaries of the historic county of Cheshire, it is one of the Four Heatons and borders Heaton Chapel, Heaton Norris and Heaton Mersey. The Moor Top lies in the heart of Heaton Moor, surrounded by high levels of residential housing and local amenities.

You can expect to earn a guaranteed minimum income of £20,000 which is paid weekly (£385 per week). In addition, you'll be paid a percentage of weekly sales, known as the weekly turnover share, to cover your staffing costs. Bonuses are available based on business performance and standards audits. Private accommodation is provided where available.

An extra £3000 will be required as working capital, to ensure there is sufficient cash flow in the business before we make our first payment to you.
