Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market The Red Tile Inn. The property has been home to a country inn for over 200 years. This is a great asset to the village that benefits from a generous repeat loyal trade. Our clients have owned the pub for over a year but are now looking to sell, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

This pub is a traditional dog friendly country inn set on a leafy country road. The business splits its trade 80% wet sales, mostly real ales, larger and spirits, to 20% dry sales. This is a destination eatery that has a varied menu with some traditional pub classics as well as some speciality dishes. This includes Paella, Mediterranean salad, burgers, steaks, sausage and mash, fish and chips, steak and ale pie and calamari as well as a popular carvery. All meat products are sourced from local suppliers.

The business generated a turnover in the region of £105,000 as of the 2016 accounts, with a gross profit of 47%. The new owners should look to extend opening hours to allow for more custom.

The pub has a skittle alley, this is used by four local skittles teams. The alley can also be used by regular customers when not in use by the teams. Pub games are a great way of bringing in repeat loyal trade. There is a large games room, currently unused. The new owner should look to introduce a pool table, there is a darts board in place with no teams. This should encourage more pub teams and competitions at the pub.

The pub has an excellent online presence with the business website and Facebook page, which are both kept regularly updated. () The pub also features on TripAdvisor were there are some excellent reviews.

Included in the sale is a three-bed owner’s accommodation which is situated above the pub. The pub is set on a one acre site, with several outer buildings and two beer gardens, perfect in the warmer summer months.

This would be a perfect opportunity for a husband and wife team looking to work hands on at the pub. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
