This is a rare opportunity to operate a fantastic high street mainstream pub and live in the heart of Beverley’s Georgian Quarter. The Royal Standard Hotel is well-positioned for its target market and enjoys a solid customer base. There’s now an opportunity for a new operator to build on these foundations by exploring new and exciting activities and events to help drive new footfall through the doors. The locals love their rugby and horse racing, and these will continue to play a key role in attracting trade, alongside the delivery of premium products, quality and service.
The Royal Standard has a modest but attractive presence on Beverley high street with hanging baskets playing a pivotal role in attracting customers. It’s Cask Marque accredited, with a good selection of cask ales. Inside, the pub has one central bar that serves a traditional locals’ public bar and a softer, more comfortable lounge area. The pub was refurbished a couple of years ago and the internal styling reflects the pub’s history and heritage. Outside, there’s a cosy and intimate external drinking space, ideal for enjoying a drink on barmy summer evenings.
The pub benefits from an excellent duplex flat, which comprises three double bedrooms, study, lounge, kitchen and bathroom arranged over two floors.
Beverley is a prosperous market town in East Yorkshire, which continues to attract businesses and residential developers. The Royal Standard is located in the heart of the Georgian Quarter, which is a thriving part of town. The pub is a few metres from the North Bar, one of Beverley’s ancient entrances and sits directly opposite some beautiful Georgian town houses. The Fleur De Lys restaurant has recently opened next door to the Royal Standard and Thwaite’s flagship investment the Beverley Arms will open this year, pulling even more people to this part of Beverley.
Impeccable service quality is key in attracting Beverley’s discerning customers. You’ll need to be outgoing but attentive, with energy, enthusiasm and passion for customer service in abundance.
