This eye-catching high street mainstream proposition benefits from a prominent position in a bustling local town, which puts a good customer base on its doorstep. We’re planning substantial internal and external investment here. Do you have what it takes to help us develop a great brand at this site?
With its elaborate and eye-catching exterior, the Freemasons Arms is hard to miss on Handforth high street, just to the north of Wilmslow. This mock Tudor pub has an imposing clock tower (although no clock) and sits in a prominent position on the main crossroads in the centre of Handforth. This is an iconic pub with real presence – but it’s now in need of some TLC. We’re planning substantial internal investment at this site, fully refurbishing and modernising the interior to create a high street mainstream pub that suits this busy area, which has a decent demographic. The exterior will also be redecorated to help re-position the pub, and plans to create a beer garden at the side of the pub have also been proposed. It is currently an open plan trading operation but the key spaces feel separated, as the fabric of the building lends itself to sectioning the areas. Have you got the drive and vision to help us breathe new life into this popular pub?
The private accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge.
The Freemasons Arms sits in the heart of the Cheshire town of Handforth, near Wilmslow. Handforth is a heavily populated community, with a population of about 6,500. The town is located about a mile north of Wilmslow and 3.5 miles east of Manchester Airport. It’s also within easy commuting distance of Manchester, making it a popular place to live. The pub occupies a prominent position on the main junction of the small high street and is surrounded by a number of other pubs, as well as eateries and plenty of residential housing.
This would be an ideal opportunity for an experienced operator, who is looking for a high street mainstream pub. You’ll need to be personable and outgoing, and ideally also on trend to help us develop a great brand at this site.
