More Information

The Pleasant Retreat is a well-established pub at the centre of Lostock Hall, a suburb of Preston. The site benefits from its roadside location and proximity to the main shopping strip of the town. The residents of Lostock Hall tend to be maturing families on mid-range incomes, enjoying comfortable lifestyles.

Whilst being a town centre pub, the Pleasant Retreat has a strong local trade and has had both pool and football teams previously. It has a strong following in the local area and is known to be part of the local community. Our future vision for the Pleasant Retreat is to maintain current wet trade whilst introducing a small food offer to take advantage of the catering kitchen.

The ideal licensee could be an experienced operator with a proven track record in running successful outlets of this type or someone new to the industry looking for their first step into running their own hospitality venue.

Trading Area & Facilities

Internally, this large red brick building has two separate trading areas each supported by one central servery. The main lounge has much more of a pub feel to it with a mix of loose and fixed seating to let you enjoy drinks with friends. The second trading area is more focused around pub games and has a pool table and darts board with several gaming machines. Further to this the pub has a catering kitchen which is currently not in use but represents a good opportunity for future growth.

Externally, the Pleasant Retreat is supported by an outdoor trading area, which has covered seating and a smoking solution, and would benefit from some attention to then be an additional area of the pub to be enjoyed.

Private Accommodation

The private accommodation at the Pleasant Retreat comprises a lounge, kitchen/ dining area, bathroom, three bedrooms and a separate toilet.
