Charming Traditional Tavern

Located just off the A658, The Smiling Mule is a charming traditional tavern surrounded by residential housing. Due to this location, there is ample opportunity to engage with locals and develop a beloved community pub.

Although there is no kitchen on site, an ambitious operator will have the ability to introduce a small bar snacks menu. Visitors to the pub currently enjoy a variety of entertainment which includes karaoke, live sports and darts - a darts team would go down a treat. There is the added bonus of an impressive beer garden to the rear of the pub which includes an elevated decked area and an area for children to play.

Welcoming, Local Operator Wanted

For The Smiling Mule, we are keen to partner with a local operator who has a passion for good service and good beer. You will engage the local community using your ability to not only create an appealing entertainment offering but also to market the pub through social media.

Trading Area & Facilities

The Smiling Mule is a spacious two bar operation which is sectioned into various seating areas - some of which are discreet, snug like corners. There is a tavern-like feel to the pub due to its low beamed ceiling and fireplaces.

Outside, the beer garden is impressive. It is a large area which has not only an elevated decked space but also an area for children to play in. This garden has the potential to be a popular hub during the warmer summer months.

Private Accommodation

The private accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. As part of our Ready to Trade promise, we will ensure that your private accommodation is in a good state of repair so that you can focus your time and energy on your new business.

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.
