Black Horse Kirkham

Major Investment Planned

The Black Horse is located in the bustling town of Kirkham, Lancashire situated between Blackpool and Preston. The pub is located close to the high street and therefore benefits from an abundance of passing trade.

Once the proposed refurbishment works are complete, including changes to the pub's layout, outside area and upgrading its interior to create a traditional yet quirky atmosphere, the Black Horse has the opportunity to become the go-to pub destination in the area, attracting families and couples alike.

Innovative Operator

Once works are completed, this pub will be able to offer a quality food menu and much improved customer flow. We are seeking a licensee with excellent business acumen and who has experience of implementing a successful food offer.

The existing pool games area and gents toilets will

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.
