Rental offers in excess of £30,000 per annum are being sought for the Crown Inn at Pooley Bridge in Penrith, Cumbria.

The public house with large beer garden overlooking the River Eamont is being offered to let by the licensed and leisure division of real estate advisors Colliers International on behalf of pub and restaurant operator Mitchells & Butlers.

The business is offered at an annual rent of in excess of £30,000 plus five per cent of turnover per annum.

Colin Siebert, director, licensed and leisure at the North West office of Colliers International in Manchester, said the three-storey semi-detached premises presented an opportunity for a new manager to grow the business via measures such as potentially refurbishing upper floor accommodation to provide bedrooms to let.

Mr Siebert said: “This is a rare opportunity to acquire a business in a honeypot location in the Lake District and at relatively low cost. The premises offer great scope for a focused manager to bring further success to an already very good operation.”
