The Crown is an impressive detached property with imposing features and a grand feel. The pub is set in a great location set back from the main road through the popular village of Wyke; there is substantial passing traffic and footfall. The property itself is a traditional stone built rendered property with large windows looking out over the street. The Crown has a great open feel with a single bar to the left upon entry and a dancefloor and seating area to the left with access to the toilets. There is a large car park to the side, and the pub boasts a large front drinking patio looking out over the road. While the pub is currently closed and as such will require a good clean and tidy up. The general condition/décor internally is very good with a modern feel. Externally the pub is in equally good condition, but the externals could benefit from efforts to give the pub more kerb appeal and the pub company are open to input from the right operator with regard this aspect. All in all, this is a great pub in a great location which with a strong, unique selling point should easily be able to become a fantastic business and put the pub back at the heart of the community in Wyke.
The site appears to have traded as a weekend venue, most likely attracting younger consumers. With the right operator, this is likely to be a key source of income, but the site lends itself to so much more such as; Live sports, value offers in the daytime etc. This pub requires someone with a good knowledge of the local market, in particular, the busy weekend market. Due to the trading style of this site over attention to licensing considerations will be a must to ensure that the issues that a busy weekend venue brings are controlled effectively. The ideal applicant will have a passion for basics being done to a very good standard and for marketing the site using all marketing media to ensure the offer/message reaches a large audience.
