Looking to run a pub?
The Ash Inn is a small, well-furnished pub perfectly located on the main road between Barnsley and the small town of Wombwell in South Yorkshire.
Inside, the pub has a homely feel, with a central bar area, casual dining and drinking space to the right, and a small restaurant area to the left, with room for approximately 40 internal covers in total. The pub is well equipped for drinkers and diners as well as for hosting events such as celebrations and quiz nights.
Outside, the pub’s large garden is a leafy green haven in the summer, with plenty of room for children, around 20 covers and heaps of potential. To the front, the pub has a smoking shelter to be re-configured as part of the planned investment, along with 10 car parking spaces.
The pub will be receiving a minor internal refurbishment, including an extension to the front of the building to improve cover capacity. This extension will come with new fixed seating and loose furniture as well as decorations.
The internal refurbishment will include a new second lobby, improvements to the existing bar counter and a new back bar, as well as a new kitchen layout. The beer garden will also benefit from the fitting of a new post and rope.
The domestic accommodation consists of a private kitchen and two private bedrooms, which Punch will ensure is in good order.
About the local area
The pub is located on the A633 – the main road between Wombwell and Barnsley. Its situation is within walking distance from local residential areas and a short drive from Barnsley, giving it the potential for plenty of footfall.
These towns and villages are surrounded by beautiful countryside and the Trans Pennine Trail even passes close to the pub – bringing with it lots of tired walkers and cyclists in need of refreshments!
This may pub may suit
This pub is ideal for an experienced operator who is able to capitalise on its high visibility from the roadside, proximity to residential areas, cosy dining areas and beautiful garden.
A catering background would be particularly beneficial to realise the pub’s potential by making good use of the new kitchen layout and fantastic dining areas.
