More Information

Rare City Garden Space – Refurbishment Planned

Gibsons is a high street circuit bar in the centre of historical York, a highly popular tourist destination in North Yorkshire.
The pub is perfectly located in the heart of the city beside the city walls and is one of the first bars at the top of Micklegate ensuring it benefits from excellent footfall.

The planned refurbishment by Star Pubs and Bars will see Gibsons transformed into a stylish premium pub with the ability to appeal to a varied customer base, including tourists, locals, and students and further boost the potential of the pub.

Trading Area & Facilities

Internally, Gibsons is a comfortable, rustic bar with a rock music-themed decor. The pub is made up of an open plan main trading area featuring the bar and small side rooms leading off from the main area.

The planned refurbishment will see a breadth of textures internally, exposed brickwork, attractive seating and lighting and a brighter bar with an improved back bar focused on a premium offer with more an equal drink and food split.
External works will highlight the size and maximise the use of hidden courtyard space, a rarity on the York high-street. A mixed clientele will be attracted by the stylish finish from tourists, locals, and student visitors.

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 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.
