This is a rare opportunity for an experienced operator to join the Robinsons’ family on a 5-year tenancy agreement at the beautifully appointed Country Village Inn, The Ribchester Arms. Set in the stunning Ribble Valley, the Ribchester Arms is a large, detached, destination food-led pub, situated in the village of Ribchester, close to both Preston and Blackburn. There is a large patio area to the front and a smaller patio to the rear overlooking a stream. Internally there is large, long bar, which services the pub, with seating for around 20 people in this area, a great space for a relaxed drink. Coming off the bar area there is a separate dining area, function/conference room, and catering kitchen. On the first floor of the pub there are three letting rooms, that aren’t currently being used. Robinsons are looking for a new licensee who will be able to open these rooms up and market them successfully. This type of pub business opportunity rarely becomes available, therefore Robinsons are seeking a highly experienced catering operator to take over the reins and work in partnership with them in the future development of this prestigious pub business.
