The trading space is split between two small bar areas and two additional dining spaces, providing for up to 60 covers at full capacity. The beer garden to the side of the property also offers extended outside drinking and dining space. The pub has a large car park with space for 30 vehicles. It also offers a smoking solution and free WiFi for customers’ use.
The domestic accommodation consists of two bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
The Red Cat sits in the heart of the small village of Crank, adjacent to Rainford and on the edge of the St Helens conurbation. It’s a semi-rural area with a relatively good demographic, despite the limited number of chimney pots in the immediate area. The pub is popular with both local drinkers and destination diners, who will drive to the venue from the surrounding villages and towns. As one of the highest pubs on Merseyside, the Red Cat enjoys spectacular views and some wonderful sunsets. On a clear day, it’s possible to see as far as the mountains of North Wales.
An ideal opportunity for an own operator, who is looking for a popular country dining pub business. It would be perfect for an experienced couple, who are capable of operating and managing both the kitchen and front of house areas.
