Craft Beer House

The Phoenix is located in the centre of Exmouth in a densely populated area with 15,000 adults within one mile of the pub. Exmouth has a growing population of professionals, is a commuter hub for Exeter and has recently benefited from significant investment, making this the perfect place for a trendy new pub with a stand-out offer.

An extensive refurbishment inspired by the craft beer house style will transform The Phoenix into a unique and contemporary pub which aims to bring the trendy London drinking scene to Exmouth. The bar area will be completely refurbished with a distressed and edgy vibe, offering the perfect space for customers to enjoy drinks and the new casual, street food offer. This, combined with a brand-new indoor garden courtyard featuring hanging chairs and a games area, will appeal to those looking for something new and exciting.

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.
