Looking to run a pub?
The Black Swan is a truly traditional pub centrally located within the affluent village of Wistow, North Yorkshire. It’s the only pub in the immediate area and has fabulous facilities to offer food and drink to the local community offering a beer garden with fantastic countryside views, which is a great draw in the Summer months. The Black Swan would suit an operator keen to settle into a village community, who is passionate about good food and drink and has warmth and personality to build great local relationships and get involved with local activities.
Internally we have a restaurant area which offer a generous 65 covers (easily serviced by the catering kitchen) which then flows into the bar area, the main bar is centrally located.
It also offers large car park (up to 16 cars), a fantastic beer garden with open countryside views and a children’s external play area.
Punch are planning a £100k investment at the Black Swan which will see the external and internal areas being upgraded.
The private accommodation includes 3 bedrooms, a kitchen, lounge and bathroom, this will be upgraded with the investment
