White Lion Melton Mowbray

Established Pub in Town Centre

The White Lion Hotel sits in the centre of Melton Mowbray. It is well placed to take advantage of day time trade, especially during its world-famous market day.

The pub is in walk-in condition, ready for the next operator to take the realms. The real jewel in the White Lions crown is the sizeable rear garden which makes it unique in the town. It benefits from an outdoor bar, offering the opportunity for it to be the place in Melton to watch major sporting events and enjoy live music.

In order to ensure a successful start-up, all applicants must have a minimum £10,000 un-borrowed funds.

The Estimated Licensee Fixtures & Fittings (F&F) Value assumes that the pub will be let on a Rolling Tenancy or Business Start-Up Agreement, where we own the majority of the F&F. The F&F Value for Full Repairing & Insuring Leases will be significantly more.

The calculation of the Estimated Minimum Ingoing Costs assumes a minimum deposit of 1 month's rent or £3,000 (whichever is greater) and that fixtures and fittings (F&F) are rented. The subsequent deposit build up and F&F rental costs are not included in the rent model or ongoing costs below.
