Property Features:

The Near Boot is located on the Whiteclosegate road, outside the village of Houghton, just north of Carlisle. The pub sits on the edge of this affluent residential area and approximately 4 miles from the new Carlisle Airport due to open in 2020. The pub is currently popular with the local community and also benefits from a strong passing trade income due to its prime position on the B6264 leading to Carlisle and linking the A7 and A689. The B6264 also links Carlisle directly to the new airport on the A689, and with the Near Boot being the closest pub there is excellent opportunity to benefit from increased passing trade.

Post refurbishment, key enhancements will further boost The Near Boot as a traditional, cosy venue with a contemporary country twist. The pub interior will host an attractive contrast of traditional features and modern design elements. The kitchen layout will be altered to create a bigger pass and better flow to the trading areas, allowing the pub to serve a standout dining experience within the local community. The pub can accommodate 80 covers.

Externally, the pub has a prominent roadside position, and the traditional white painted facade has real kerb appeal. To the rear is an extensive grassy outside trading area, able to accommodate an approximate additional 100 covers, which is a fantastic feature and a real asset. As part of the investment by the landlords, the outdoor terrace will be improved to create an attractive area where customers can enjoy drinks during the warmers months and relax in beautiful surroundings, and a new play area will be introduced on the grassy area. The pub also has a car park at the rear which has approximately 40 spaces.

Trading Style:

The Near Boot already enjoys a strong food trade, and we are looking for the new operator to maintain the high quality with an exciting food menu full of premium pub classics. A complimentary drink offer, including an expansion of the wine offer, will add extra appeal. The pub does not currently show live sports or provide entertainment, which provides additional opportunity to introduce live sports and an events calendar to help drive trade

The landlords are looking for an operator experienced in providing high volumes of good quality food and preferably with good local knowledge. You should also be able to introduce an appealing events calendar and know how to promote the pub.

Private Accommodation:

The private accommodation consists of multiple bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, and lounge. Where required there will be appropriate works carried out in line with the landlords ready to trade promise.
