Sell your Pub the Hilton Smythe Way

Are you ready to put your pub on the market? Here at Hilton Smythe, we’ll make sure your pub’s got the pulling power to attract serious buyers.

Selling a business can be hard work, but with thousands of registered buyers looking to buy a business just like yours, we’re confident you will sell your business faster with Hilton Smythe than you would with any other broker or agent.

Should I sell?

The nation’s pub industry has suffered a blow in the past few years, with a number of pubs all over the UK shutting down. However, many pub owners have proved that if you’re willing to adapt to a changing market, then business can thrive. Research shows that many younger landlords are investing in pubs, giving the market a makeover and a fresh lease of life.

Before deciding to sell your prized boozer, you need to ensure it’s the right time to sell your business. The traditional British pub is famous all over the world and you don’t want to let it go too soon. Establish your reasons for selling and make sure it’s the right time to get the best price.

Freehold or leasehold

As specialist business brokers in all sectors, we understand the vital differences between selling a leasehold pub and a freehold pub. The challenges involved in selling a lease include having three parties instead of two (as the pub company will have their own requirements to consider).

We have years of experience selling pubs with different lease types, and can advise as appropriate. We can identify the right buyer and gather lots of interest in your business by advertising on multiple platforms. Loads of people dream of running their own pub, and you can make their dreams come true.

Looking for a new adventure?

If you’re ready for a new challenge or fancy changing careers, we could also help you as you move in your new direction after the sale of your business. Whether you’re looking to buy another pub or you’re looking for a different opportunity, we have hundreds of businesses for sale all over the UK. We’re positive you’ll be happy with the Hilton Smythe service as a seller, so why not instruct us to find a buyer for your business?
