Farmers Boy Huddersfield

Popular Village Pub - Refurbishment Planned

Located within the affluent village of Shepley in West Yorkshire, The Farmers Boy is a charming pub that already enjoys a great reputation locally. Demographics in the area are great - over 2,700 adults living within a 20 minute walk of the pub, the locals tend to be mature professionals and affluent families who have the expendable income to enjoy lifestyle activities.

We plan to rejuvenate The Farmer's Boy with a £310,000 investment that will refurbish both the bar and dining room along with all outside areas. Our vision for the pub post refurbishment is a stylish village local that boasts a good local food menu, cask ale, craft beer and premium spirits - to make this the go to in the local area.

Experienced Innovative Operator Wanted

For The Farmer's Boy, we are keen to partner with an ambitious publican. You will be passionate about good food, premium drinks offers and know how to market your pub online. Apply now to hear how Star Pubs & Bars, a Publican Awards 2018 winner, can support you to grow this exciting business. Please note, experience running a similar outlet will be essential to be considered for this pub.

The Farmer's Boy historically has a great reputation as a locals bar and a drive to destination food outlet. The incoming lessee will be able to capitalise and expand on this, including the introduction of a new food offering to complement the refurbished surroundings. A new welcoming entrance to the pub will be formed, and the flow between internal zones and the beer garden will be streamlined. All of the above, paired with a cosy, traditional vibe and upgraded interior, will make it the perfect pub for all to enjoy.

Trading Area & Facilities

Inside, we will refurbish both the bar and dining room of the pub. In the bar, we will enhance the space with appealing decorative features and a feature tiled wall to boost the pub's aesthetics upon customer entry to the pub. We will refresh the existing back bar area to allow for more products, such as niche spirits, to be displayed. The dining room will be refreshed to create more space for covers, approximately 70 inside.

Outside, we will create new appealing signage for the pub. To the front, we will create a new timber and stone porch over the entrance to create some impressive kerb appeal, along with a 'stake your claim' beer garden adorned with timber planters.

To the rear, we will restore the current decked terrace and soften this space with stylish rope fencing, new furniture timber planters. The terrace will be warmly illuminated with new festoon lighting.

To the side, there is a flagged courtyard outside seating area, and a grassed area, that could be developed providing some great additional outside space to push sales.

Applicants should be aware that all refurbishments are subject to final board approval which will be determined as part of the leasing process. Where a significant investment is made in a pub by Star Pubs & Bars, an "Investment Exemption" will be required. The exemption means that the option of a Market Rent Option lease won't be available at rent review for a period of up to seven years for this site, as per The Pub Code (2016).

Private Accommodation

Private accommodation consists of two bedrooms, kitchen, living room and bathroom. In line with our Ready To Trade Promise, we will ensure that your living accommodation is also brought to a good standard so that you can focus on getting your business right.
