Trading Area & Facilities

Internally the Bretherton Arms is an open spaced, one bar operation. It'll be refurnished with new, modern seating suitable for over 60 covers. Works will be done to the entrance, lounge areas, bar areas and bar servery to create a modern, rustic environment. An additional income stream is provided with a Gaming Machine.

Externally, we're creating a brand new, spacious beer garden at the rear of the pub with room for 124 covers. This will encourage alfresco drinking and dining throughout the warmer months. There is a small car park on site with street parking available.

Please refer to the attached Refurbishment Details for more information on the planned investment.

Please be aware that all refurbishments are subject to final board approval which will be determined as part of the leasing process.

The above figures are provided as a guide only and will be finalised as part of the commercial agreement. All figures quoted are exclusive of VAT.

Estimated Working Capital is an estimate of key start-up costs such as professional fees, training fee, premises license fee, F&F valuation fee & till floats. There will be additional ongoing charges payable during the term of the agreement such as property maintenance, repairs fund, SmartDispense. These costs will be outlined prior to completing a business plan and finalised at Heads of Terms.

The calculation of the Estimated Minimum Ingoing Costs assumes a minimum deposit of 1 month's rent and that fixtures and fittings (F&F) are rented. The subsequent deposit build up and F&F rental costs should be included in your financial assumptions in your business plan. Note that on FRI and Investment Tenancy Agreements deposits will always be 3 month's rent in advance and fixtures and fittings (F&F) must always be purchased. A deposit of 6 month's rent will be required for operators trading under a Limited Company with no Guarantors. In order to ensure a successful start-up, all applicants must have a minimum £10,000 un-borrowed funds.
