Pub overview

This site has a proposed annual rent which includes an investment spend of £60,000!

The Travellers Rest is a fantastic opportunity for a skilled and driven pub operator. This public house has the scale and potential for expansion to increase all income streams. The pub is in the heart of the community with a separate public bar ideal for team games and dining area which can be maximised on. It is a family friendly pub with a garden and patio area, great for the warmer months. There are a few large flat screen TV's showing Sky Sports throughout the year.

An investment is planned to re-design and decorate the lounge area and back bar. The site is predominantly a wet led site operating a 80:20 wet to dry split. We are looking for an experienced licensee who can develop this site further including the food offer as there is a big opportunity here to take.

Please note the minimum ingoing cost is as shown, £26,750 for this Standard Tenancy agreement due to an Assisted Purchase agreement being available to support purchasing the Fixtures and Fittings in the site.

Two separate trade areas, currently offering a bar/dining area and also a sports bar area which has pool table and gaming facilities.
