Looking to run a pub?
The Kings Arms is a popular community mainstream with a great reputation for its food offer. Opportunities abound to build on the foundations put in place by the current publican over a tenure lasting nine years. With a quality food and drink offer, this pub can not only serve local villagers but also attract customers from further afield. Cask ales, wines and premium spirits will all play a part in the retail offer and the pub will benefit from a comprehensive programme of weekly activities and a well-prepared quarterly marketing plan. A TV sports offer could also be explored in the future.
The Kings Arms operates across three separate trading rooms, all served by one bar. The lounge has a lovely fireplace and offers a mixture of fixed and loose furniture alongside vertical drinking at the bar counter. Heading towards the rear of the pub, there’s a room that offers a variety of options – it houses the carvery unit, but can equally be a small function room or even a private dining room. The conservatory area increases the number of covers available throughout to 48 and offers an attractive dining environment overlooking the village green. The pub is surrounded by well-tended lawns and offers both a beer garden and smoking solution, plus a 12-space car park.
Your domestic accommodation currently consists of three bedrooms and a lounge. Punch is planning investment to create a new domestic kitchen.
The local area
North Duffield is a village that lies just to the north-east of Selby on the main A163 road from Selby to Market Weighton. It’s a relatively affluent area and the local primary school gained a Good rating from Ofsted in July 2017. The pub sits in a prominent position in the heart of the village, overlooking the village green and duck pond.
This available pub may suit
The Kings Arms could potentially be a good first-time pub. You’ll enjoy a high profile within the pub and experience of delivering a food offer is required, as recruiting catering talent is challenging in this area. Punch offer training and support so do get in touch to find out more about this opportunity.
