Business Description
Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this delightful Public House which is located in Stratford Upon Avon. The property has been a watering hole since its existence back in 1834 and has been in the careful hands of our clients for the past 12 months. Reluctantly the business is being offered for sale due to the current owners wishing to relocate to surrey. Since ownership they have continually invested in new equipment along with 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 West End is a community pub which is supported by 2 darts, 2 pool & a dominos team. Currently the business is very much owner operated with the help of 4 part time members of staff along with a cleaner. The turnover for year ending February 2018 stands at £320,342 net of VAT with a split of 80% wet sales where they serves a fine selection of cask ales, beers, ciders, wines and spirits. The remaining 20% comes from dry sales where they serve homemade pizzas and hearty home cooked fayre. All meals are freshly prepared on site to order, using only the freshest locally sourced ingredients. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade by expanding upon the current menu, offering Sunday lunches and with some investment, the first floor could lend itself to letting accommodation. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with many visiting tourists. 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.
