Business Description
Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this respected Public House which is located in Atherstone town centre. The property has been a watering hole for circa 100 years and has been in the careful hands of my clients for the past 9 ½ years and is now reluctantly be offered for sale so that they can enjoy a well deserved retirement. Since ownership they have invested in various fixtures & fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. The Hat & Beaver is very much owner operated and employs the help of just 3 part time members of staff and has annual turnover of circa £180,000. Turnover comes from 100% wet sales where they have the benefit of being totally free of tie. They are a well known bass house, are in Camra’s Good Beer Guide and serve a fine range of cask ales, beers, ciders, wines, spirits and soft drinks. This is a regulars pub with a good early doors trade, is the first pub on the way into the town centre and benefits from a free car park opposite. They also have a good following for football & horse racing due to them showing Sky Sports. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade should you wish too by extending upon the current opening times and maybe introducing food sales. The business has built a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with passers by. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this business is not to be missed.
