Golden Lion St Helens

Destination Pub

Due to undergo a complete refurbishment, The Golden Lion is a superb destination pub, situated on Church Road in Rainford village, close to the local railway station. Supported by a great catchment area of families and professionals, the pub has the potential to create a loyal and lucrative customer base.

Currently there is an extensive range of seasonal cask ales, along with great beer and cider. The food offering is freshly prepared and home cooked. The proposed refurbishment will improve the pubs visual appeal and modernise the facilities.

Trading Area & Facilities

Internally, the pub will benefit from a refurbishment to create a modern, free flowing casual dining experience. The Golden Lion is split into two trading areas; a bar & lounge and a separate restaurant seating 50-60 guests. The catering kitchen will receive investment as part of the refurbishment.

Externally, kerb appeal will be improved through an enhanced lighting and signage scheme. There is a hidden gem in a wonderful secret beer garden with fantastic floral displays. This destination outlet benefits from car parking facilities to the front of the building.

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

The private accommodation at the Golden Lion consists of six bedrooms, kitchen, lounge and bathroom. In line with our 'Ready to Trade Promise', should any works be required, we will ensure your private accommodation is in good order so that you can focus your energy on getting business right.

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.
