FOOD LED BUSINESS, IN A PICTURESQUE VILLAGE
Situated in the lovely village of Orsett, The Whitmore Arms has been run by the same family for over twenty five years and offers a great opportunity to take on a well established business. Locally sourced food, drinks and friendly service have made this site a real favourite with locals and destination diners so a continuation of the standards and levels of service will be the key to your success. The pub is currently trading at approximately 40/60 in favour of food sales. The pub is famous for serving a great pint Real Ale, as well as offering a cracking Sunday Roast, so a passion for Ale will be important. The pub is well maintained having benefited from investment over the years and has great outdoor space and a decent sized car park. This business is set up and ready to go, could you be the new licensee at the Whitmore Arms?
