Grey Man Westhoughton

Popular Pub with potential for growth

The Grey Man sits in the middle of a densely populated area, with 14,000 adults living within a one-mile radius, yet there is little competition from other pubs. Therefore, The Grey Man has access to a large and profitable market
both day and night.

There is a great demand for a high-quality pub in Westhoughton and The Grey Man provides an opportunity to
create a pub that serves the local community's every need. This pub would be the ideal location for coffee dates, afternoon lunches, large family dinners, as well as a cosy local. The outdoor terrace and children's play area will entice customers during the spring and summer. This pub has the potential to be the go-to establishment in the area.

Food focused operator required

The Grey Man West Houghton will be a premium local pub with a great food offer that connects with the local community. We are looking for an operator with some experience in commercial kitchens (bars or restaurants). This business needs a tight team with an experienced front of house manager supported by a great team in the kitchen.

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).

Trading Area & Facilities

The bar areas will be refurbished with a mixture of traditional and modern finishes, for customers to enjoy drinks in a warm and welcoming space. The bar and dining area will be refurbished to produce a light and airy feel and atmosphere, which will allow the decorations to flow naturally out to the terrace. The existing kitchen is a small and non-commercial kitchen. This will be removed as part of the large refurbishment project and a new open pass
commercial kitchen will be fitted in the new extension of the pub.

The terrace will provide excellent outdoor seating for customers to enjoy the pub's food and drink menu outside during the warmer months. This will be an area for all members of the family as children can enjoy the outdoor play area. The pub exterior and signage will be refreshed.

Private Accommodation

The private accommodation at the Grey Man West Houghton has lounge, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms. 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 the business right.
