The Boy and Barrel is situated in the Westgate area of Bradford city centre, close to the Kirkgate shopping centre and smaller retail shops. The pub is a single room operation with a central bar servery. To the rear, there is a small pub garden. The pub is at the end of a terrace of shops leading into the city centre. This is a very historic building in the city, and it had had some previous notoriety when it featured in the film ‘Room at the top’ in the 1950s. Custom can also be gained from the pub's location amongst the local shops and the fact it has a lot of footfall past its door. The pub also benefits from Bradford City games with passing trade before and after the games.
The pub forms part of the city centre circuit, and it is particularly busy at weekends. The trade predominantly revolves around entertainment, and it is set up well with an in-house karaoke system. This opportunity is for you to run your pub as a self-employed manager. The landlords take care of all the running costs including rates, utilities, stock and day to day running costs whilst you take home a %age of the weekly sales, you are responsible for paying all employment costs relating to your staff and any council tax for the residential quarters. They are looking for entrepreneurial, motivated, pub-loving individuals who can run a successful business and enjoy all aspects of the hospitality industry. This model allows you the freedom to grow your income through increasing sales, whilst the landlords support you and keep the bills paid!
Please be aware energy performance certificates are available from the landlord. Ingoing cost consists of £2k deposit, £1k float.
