More Information

Significant Investment Planned

The Bankhouse is a traditional stone built pub located in the village of Pudsey. Nestled within an idyllic setting, this country pub has a real sense of character. We are now planning an investment of over £224,000 to reopen this once celebrated establishment.

The pub is split into two trading areas - a main bar and dining room. It also boasts a beautiful beer garden that offers customers views of the surrounding countryside. Our investment will cover all trading areas of the pub to create a truly beautiful destination country pub.

The new operator of The Bankhouse should drive trade through a quality food menu. They should also offer a variety of cask ale and premium spirits.

Established Food Operator Wanted

The perfect operator for The Bankhouse will have a passion for food. They will have prior experience running a similar pub and have the ability to market their business effectively online.

  • Catering Kitchen

  • Function Room

  • Investment Tenancy

  • Car Park

  • Cask Ale

  • Outdoor Trade

  • Private Accommodation

  • Refurbishment Planned

Trading Area & Facilities

The pub is split into a main bar and dining room, both serviced from one central bar. Our investment will cover all trading areas of the pub.

In the bar, we will steam clean the original stone and slate features. We will reupholster the existing fixed seating in leather and add new free standing furniture. The fireplace will be restored so that this space has a cosy feel to it. We will also add new lighting and decoration throughout.

In the dining room, we will add new flooring. The existing furniture will be upcycled and we will add new decorations throughout. The WCs will also be refurbished to a high standard. The catering kitchen will receive a new layout to create more space and new flooring will be added.

The pub has a fantastic beer garden, offering customers scenic views of the surrounding countryside. Our investment will further add to the appeal of this space - this will include new bench style seating and oak pole lighting. Twinkly festoon lighting will be hung over the seating area and in the surrounding trees. These additions will create a truly magical space in the warmer summer evenings.

We will also create new signage for the pub. The windows and doors will be repainted and the existing flags and concrete pads will be cleaned.

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).
