Kings Arms Clitheroe

Charming Community Hub

Refurbishment Planned! The Kings Arms is a charming, established community local in a well-populated district of Clitheroe. The town is near the Forest of Bowland and attracts visitors through its numerous festivals, boutique shopping and beautiful scenery. Popular with locals and sports teams alike, an opportunity exits to drive further trade through a good food.

The site will be transformed to allow the operator to create a traditional pub food offer with a twist. The operator will have access to our premium portfolio of drinks and include a good range of cask, craft ales and spirits. Benefitting from two fireplaces, a large commercial kitchen and a great outdoor space with a children's play area, this pub has all the amenities required to create a destination pub venue.

Innovative and Creative Operator Wanted

This pub would suit an operator with the ability to drive revenue through a great food offering to compliment the strong drinks trade. We're looking for a forward thinking, creative publican, so if you're up to the challenge then get in touch today!

Trading Area & Facilities

Internally, the refurbishment includes the creation of zoned trading areas to allow for a dining area with feature tables and boothed seating. The bar area will be revamped to ensure a cosy, welcoming feel, with a fireplace and stone flooring. This will lead into a second area with new timber flooring, another fireplace and mix of fixed and loose seating.

Externally, a new lighting and signage scheme will greatly enhance kerb appeal. A new seating area will be created to the front for guests to enjoy, along with a new children's playground to the rear.

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 consists of three bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and living room works have already been carried out to the accommodation to bring in line with the Star Pubs & Bars Ready to Trade promise.

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.
