Could you run this pub?
The Greyhound is a great pub in Burgh by Sands. It’s a lovely village situated on the popular Coast-To-Coast walk (or cycle) in Carlisle, which offers passing trade all year and increases massively in the warmer weather, so there is a fabulous opportunity to develop a thriving food and drink business. The pub offers some fabulous features including a great beer garden at the front and back and is also nearby the village sports pitch which attracts visitors from across the area for different occasions.
This pub offers open plan trading, with cosy seating around the bar area, perfect for dining as well as drinks with friends (offering 45 covers). The slightly raised area offers a pool table and there could be an opportunity to increase seating with a revised layout.
The front beer garden space offers picnic benches, allowing customers to sit and watch the events at the sports pitch, play area or people watch while the beer garden around the back is more private. To the rear of the pub is a small decking area. The pub also offers a trade kitchen and car park (up to 15 cars).
This pub offers two bedrooms, a separate kitchen and lounge
The pub will undergo a refresh, with the outside being painted and the interior benefitting from an update to features and furnishings
