Looking to run a pub?
The Crown Hotel is a lovely and cosy community pub which is situated on the edge of the market town of Darwen, in beautiful Lancashire just off the Pennines. The venue is known for its live music and good beers and needs a fantastic new operator with personality to create a friendly and welcoming drinking spot for the area. Its in an area with several businesses including a local supermarket, community college, eateries and a pharmacy within nearby distance alongside its residents who live in local terrace houses which means there is regular passing trade.
This pub has an open plan trading area with central bar. There is a raised area opposite bar where the bands play and a raised area to the rear of the pub which is home to the pool table and dart board with a central bar serving all areas.
There is a trade kitchen which gives scope to provide bar snacks.
We are planning a refurbishment including new external decorations and signage, full internal redecoration and upgrades to the fixtures & fittings.
The private domestic accommodation will include 3 bedrooms, a private kitchen and lounge.
