Run a Stonegate Pub - Royal Oak Ulverston, Cumbria

About the Pub

Nestled in the small former bobbin mill village of Spark Bridge, within the Lake District National Park, the Royal Oak is a traditional country pub situated on the River Crake. The fabulous pub offers a warm welcome to the bar area with a real open fire, traditional cosy surroundings, real ales and quality home-cooked food. The pub makes a great base for exploring the Lake District, being close to Coniston and Coniston Water and with easy access to Grizedale, Hawkshead, Windermere, Bowness-on-Windermere and the local market town of Ulverston. There is also the added benefit of three cosy en suite letting rooms which provide an extra revenue to the already popular pub. We are looking for a great publican who has the skills to develop a quality menu and really embrace the community feel.

Regional Manager's Thoughts

The Royal Oak is a great meeting place for local residents, as well as being well-reputed in the wider area for its locally sourced food. The letting rooms attract professionals from Barrow and the many visitors to the area. The pub presents a unique opportunity for someone to become actively involved in everyday life in this fabulous location and with a range of cask ales, a good food offer and letting accommodation, it has a number of revenue streams upon which to capitalise.

Surrounding Area

Located within the Lake District National Park, Spark Bridge is a quiet village in the civil parish of Ulverston, with a lively community spirit. The pub is a well positioned base for walkers and tourists, being less than half an hour from the village of Windermere and just four miles from the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway. The River Crake passes from Coniston Water four miles away, through Spark Bridge en route to the Leven Estuary, and at this point canoeists often use the village green to leave the river.
