Community Pub For Sale In A Great location

Completed
  • Reference: 12314 J
  • Location: Witney, Oxfordshire
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Swan Hotel. The business was first established in the 18th century. This is a historic village pub with beautiful features. Our client only very recently took over the business in 2015 and is now reluctantly looking to sell the business due to other business commitments.

This is a well-established grade II listed pub offering a fine range of cask conditioned real ales, draught ciders, lagers and fine wines. The business has a charming bar and a restaurant that offers an excellent Sunday roast, plus traditional Thai Cuisine from Tuesday to Saturday. There are 5 bright en-suite bedrooms available for letting. The pub also boasts games facilities, a detached function room, live TV sports events, a large beer garden and ample amounts of parking.

The business is only tied to beer and FABs - meaning all profits from machines, food, wine, spirits and accommodation and is free of tie. We are members of the SIBA scheme which means freedom of choice of brews off Enterprise's list and small craft or local breweries.

The business currently generates an advised turnover of around £293,289 per annum, as per the 2016 accounts, which is a healthy income. This could be increased further by introducing more live acts and evening entertainment. This is a community pub that receives huge amounts of trade from locals. The location also allows for custom from passing trade.

The restaurant side of the business currently offers an extensive Thai menu. This includes delicious dishes such as noodles, curries, rice dishes, soups and much more. This is a twist from the classic menu which is attractive to custom.

There are several rooms to let at reasonable prices. Rooms can be booked through the business website www.swaneynsham.net which also promotes events and promotions.

This is a great opportunity for a hard-working new owner looking for a successful village pub. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to admire the business at its full potential.
