About the Pub

The Swan Inn is the only pub in the idyllic village of Carleton and is just a short walk from the popular tourist town of Skipton. The property has a good local customer base which provides the basis of the regular trade and is also frequently visited by passing walkers and tourists. The site is set out in two main areas; the main trading area and a function room used during the day as the 'village hub'. At full capacity the site has around 120 covers and there is a well-presented trade kitchen situated behind the trading bar, with direct access to the rear beer garden and internal public areas. It is well designed, spacious and offers good facilities to produce the menu required to develop the site to its full potential. The bar servery is along the rear wall of the trading area and is a fantastic size, giving you the scope to develop a food servery that wouldn't impact on the drinking trade. On either side of the property are large unused barns that have scope to be developed in future projects. Externally the site benefits from a frontal fringe cobbled area that hosts benches for external drinking and captures the feel of the village environment, with its quiet roads and peaceful surroundings. There is also a beer garden that offers a secure environment if you are visiting with children and is a sun trap on a bright warm day. The private accommodation consists of four bedrooms, a lounge and a kitchen, decorated to a high standard.

Regional Manager's Thoughts

With a three-room operation, a spacious beer garden and large unused barns, the Swan Inn has great scope and potential to grow as a business. The site would benefit greatly from a hands-on experienced food operator, who has the time and knowledge to develop a strong customer base and is prepared to utilise locally sourced products. Of an evening, the function room could be developed with the pub currently hosting a 'village hub', which offers and assists in a host of village activities.
