Looking to run a pub?

The Union Exchange is a traditional drinks led pub which sits on the main High Street in the centre of Colne and is close to the daytime retail footfall and right on the main pub and bar circuit in the evenings. Colne is close to the larger town of Burnley and attracts lots of its population through the week, alongside attracting lots of the walk-to trade from the nearby housing in Colne.

This community pub is well known across the area for its entertainment, live music and late licence, so it is certainly a popular pub on the drinking circuit.

We will be investing in this pub to give it a fantastic new look and feel.

Business facilities

This is a large venue which offers two rooms, one with a bar, sports area with pool and one room more suited to functions. There is a 30-40 seat beer garden for the warmer months with a smoking solution and a car park with approximately 10 spaces – there is also a free public car park adjacent to the pub.


This comprises of 3 private bedrooms, a lounge, bathroom and private kitchen.

The area has plenty going on with entertainment venues, music events and festivals and it is situated in the town centre nearby a busy high street which means there is plenty of passing trade immediately on its doorstep.
