Substantial investment scheme planned for 2023, which will see the property fully refurbished throughout, creating a premium venue. Proposed plans are to include the addition of 4 letting bedrooms and a small managers flat. Due to the compact size of the catering kitchen, along with the demographics, the scheme will be similar to the highly successful project carried out at the Holcombe Tap in Ramsbottom. We are seeking an experienced operator who would like to invest, with us, in this exciting opportunity.

Following the refurbishment we expect the property to be one of the leading premium venues in the Ribble Valley. The property will be an evolution of the Holcombe Tap scheme, offering premium drinks and small plates.
