A great opportunity to develop a destination mainstream pub and restaurant business in a thriving town near the Peak District National Park. This beautiful stone-built pub benefits from a prime position and presents a fantastic business opportunity for a high-quality food-led operator. A free of tie lease is being offered to allow an entrepreneur to fully exploit the restaurant potential here. This pub has traded on a good food offer successfully in the past, and there are further enhancements to be made. Rental bids will be considered for this business.
The Devonshire is an open plan trading operation with a restaurant feel, providing up to 55 covers. Full of traditional nooks and crannies, with open fires, free WiFi and an excellent outside dining area, the pub makes the most of its superb town centre location to pull in local drinkers and diners as well as the many visitors to the town and nearby Peak District National Park. There’s a large car park for 25 vehicles and an opportunity to further develop the pub’s great outside courtyard.
The domestic accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
