Business The Royal Oak has been operated by the current vendors for over 11 years and has established itself within the community and surrounding area.
The Royal Oak is currently 100% wet led and has a loyal following amongst the pool, darts and dominoes sector, playing host to several teams active in leagues across the town as well as two local football teams.
The site sits on the edge of the town and is located just at the top of the real ale circuit which circumnavigates the top end of this area and therefore, presents an opportunity for a new operator to tap into this sector further.
The pub could also present a food offering, opening earlier and introducing a range of staples such as pies and stews as well as traditional pub favourites. The site has the benefit of an outside trading area and car park to the rear which due to the availability of ample parking to the front of the site could easily be utilised further for bbq’s and beer festivals.
The current owner is looking to get a partial tie from the brewery (which is currently fully tied) on wines, spirits and minerals which if someone was going to offer food would be great.
The size of The Royal Oak is deceiving from the front and the internal floor space is set out across two levels with the top end being an ideal location for bands which often play here. The business also has the benefit of BT sports and therefore, also attracts sports fans from various genres to the site.
The Royal Oak is in an ideal location and represents a rare and exciting opportunity for a new operator to take the site to the next level which it clearly has the capacity to do. Coupled with spacious living accommodation and a good sized outside trading opportunity this is a business opportunity that requires serious consideration.
