Looking to run a pub?
Set in historic York, the Royal Oak is a 17th century inn, offering home-cooked food and a fine selection of drinks, including Cask Marque accredited real ales. The pub has a function room on the first floor which is ideal for small parties and groups of up to 30. It also holds regular live entertainment events, in addition to a weekly quiz night.
This quirky yet traditional pub has retained its original layout, with a snug bar to the front of the business, a lounge and dining area to the rear and a cosy front lounge for small groups and parties who want to be away from the crowds. The catering kitchen is on the first floor and can provide for up to 60 covers. Food is available all day, every day. The pub provides a smoking solution and free WiFi.
We’re investing in an internal refurbishment here, to match the exciting new retail offer planned for this business.
The domestic accommodation consists of one bedroom, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
The local area
The Royal Oak occupies a Grade II listed building close to Monkbar on Goodramgate in York and is within a short walking distance of the York Minster Cathedral. It’s a well-known and popular pub, which is perfectly situated to fully maximise trade from both locals and tourists to the city centre.
This pub may suit
We’re looking for a professional operator, who can handle a large volume food and drink offer while also delivering high service standards. You’ll need to be able to manage and motivate a large team and maintain a quality customer experience at all times. Functions will also play a large part of this business.
