Railway Bromley Cross

The subject of a proposed refurbishment, The Railway is located in a prominent location in the village of Bromley Cross. It is situated on the corner of the main road and adjacent to the railway station therefore has a strong steady stream of passing trade. The demographics show the area is affluent, consisting of experienced professionals and wealthy families.

The Railway has been an extremely successful live entertainment venue over the last few years, securing busy trade in the evenings. However, to build the business by attracting more local and passing trade, we are proposing a refurbishment that will see the outlet positioned as a mainstream pub with a good food offer.

We feel this would suit an experienced operator with a food back ground.

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).

Trading Area & Facilities

Internally a full refurbishment will take place, with both new décor and new fixtures and fittings. This will include a new floor - a mix of new timber and stone throughout - and the removal of the existing stage to allow for new seating, including both booth and high seating areas. The bar area will be reconfigured and the bar server will be fully refurbished to allow for a coffee offer.

Externally there will be a full redecoration, including a new signage and lighting scheme. This redecoration will create a beautiful garden area, featuring a pergola, as well as opening up the window areas to create better links between the internal and external areas of the pub. The façade will also be rendered to soften the feel of the building's exterior.

A new fitted kitchen will be installed to cater for the proposed new food offer.

There is parking available for around 20 cars.

Private Accommodation

The private accommodation consists of two bedrooms, living room, bathroom and kitchen. As part of our promise to you, we will ensure your private accommodation is in good order from day one so that you can focus your energy on getting the 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.
