White Swan Idle

Stylish Community Local

Located in the bustling heart of Idle, among a range of shops, schools and housing, the White Swan benefits from high passing footfall. The pub is also only three and a half miles away from Bradford, meaning there are over 68,500 affluent adults within a ten minute drive looking for a quality local pub with a standout offer. It is this position, combined with the extensive works, that will provide the new operator with an opportunity to drive significant new custom.

We are now planning a £242,000 investment in the pub to attract a new customer base and make it part of the quirky scene that is developing in the area. Works will be completed on all trading areas and the catering kitchen, allowing for 80+ covers to be served comfortably. The interior design of the pub will be refreshingly modern and quirky, with exposed natural touches such as brick walls, touches of natural wood and brightly coloured chairs. The outdoor space will also be enhanced to match the feel of the new interior.

The transformational refurbishment, with a vibrant menu and a great beer garden, will create a stand-out pub capable of trading at all points of the day. Vegan dishes, sharing boards, and quality cask ales will attract the growing independent scene in the area. Meanwhile, the community function room, locals' bar and overall quality finish of the pub will ensure it retains its loyal local customer base.

Trading Area & Facilities

Our investment will refresh not just all trading areas of the pub but also the catering kitchen.

Two distinct trading areas will be created to allow for guests to chose between either a casual bar setting or a dining room. The bar area will reworked to expose natural stone walls which will be complimented with timber and stone effect decor and new flooring. The existing fireplace will also be restored to add to the cosy, natural atmosphere.

The current dining space will be extended and partitioned by an existing wall to allow for both bar / dining and a separate dining space. This central area of the pub will have a comfy feel it it, with leather armchairs and button backed fixed seating. Feature light fixtures and bright furniture will add to the quirky overall design of the pub.

The first floor function room will be redecorated along with the WCs, which will receive new vanity units and wrought iron touches.

Outside, the pub will receive a refresh of all external signage. The beer garden to the rear of the pub will be refreshed - the current tired looking decking will be replaced with a concrete ground finish and new seating and festoon lighting will be added. A gazebo style cover will also be added.

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).

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.
