Roborough has a population of around 300 people and The New Inn benefits from consistent year-round patronage with the normal seasonal uplifts.
THE PROPERTY AND CONSTRUCTION
The property is believed to date from the 17th century. The building has some exposed stone walling, along with rendered and painted elevations beneath a thatched and part slated roof. The public rooms now comprise the main bar area with separate dining room and separate skittle alley / function room. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with a good range of commercial catering equipment. To the first floor, the private living accommodation comprises two bedrooms, living room and bathroom. Far reaching countryside views are afforded from the owners’ accommodation. Outside is a sunny beer garden whilst to the side of the property is parking for several vehicles.
Our clients are inviting offers for their leasehold interest: a 10-year term from October 2020 at a passing rent of £21,600 p.a.x.
Our clients have been in possession for the past 3 years with figures so far indicating a turnover of c. £150,000 and run as a husband-and-wife operation. The free of tie business trades approximately 60% wet sales. Opening hours are limited due to family commitments, with no opening on Saturday. It is felt that real value could be added by extending opening hours.

The property is sold subject to an inventory of trade fixtures, fittings, and equipment, the majority of which remain the property of the Landlord.
