Could you run this pub in Castlegate, Penrith?
The Station Hotel is a large building with a prominent position. It’s in a good state of external repair and continuously updated internally, focussing on the nine letting rooms.
The kitchen, trading space, letting rooms and beer garden are all in full use. Plus, the dumb waiter makes the food service to the beer garden easier than going up the stairs to reach the beer garden.
The beer garden to the rear of the property overlooks the stunning castle ruins, but access is upstairs, through an unused room which could do with updating.
The investment opportunity would be a complete facelift refurb (including the signage outside and all trading areas downstairs as well as the staircase and upper floor to the beer garden) to maintain a modern and mainstream image.
About the local area
The demographics in Penrith are country living and senior security generally, but the town attracts tourists.
You’ll find the pub near Penrith Castle ruins, attracting a good share of tourist trade (particularly coach tours during the season) with excellent transport routes. The nearby Centre Parcs brings guests on change-over days while customers await checking in.
Competition levels in Penrith are high. However, although the Station is distant from the shopping area of the centre, it is within easy walking distance of the supermarkets on the outskirts bringing good lunchtime trade from locals shopping.
You’ll be an experienced operator with previous letting experience. You’ll need to attract locals and tourists and have funds for the fixture and fittings costs.
There are three private bedrooms, a kitchen, and a lounge. There is no parking for the letting rooms.
