RETAIL OPPORTUNITY - Acton Arms
The Acton Arms is a stunning pub in a beautiful semi-rural location in the village of Morville. This is a food led pub which offers the company Willow menu, alongside a wide range of cask ales, ciders and wines. Planning permission has been requested for houses to be built at the rear of the pub.
Trading area and private accommodation
The pub has a bar area with dart board and a large separate restaurant with circa 100 covers. There is a large patio to the front of the pub and across the car park is a spacious garden area which has been well maintained. The pub was refurbished in 2013 and so is in excellent condition.
The private accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a lounge, bathroom, separate office and separate kitchen.
Local area and customer base
The Acton Arms is situated in the affluent village of Morville and is popular with locals, farmers and visitors driving to and from Bridgnorth, Shrewsbury & Much Wenlock. The local area is mainly residential with a church and school nearby. Close by is the Severn Valley Railway and River Severn.
The customer base consists mainly of locals, visitors to the area and people from the local farming community.
The Acton Arms currently trades at approximately £4,000 per week, split 60/40 in favour of food. Although established there is potential for a further £2,000 to £3,000 per week with the right operator.
Experienced food operators are required for this site. The new retailers must be able to keep excellent cask ale, manage a large kitchen, run pub teams and arrange live entertainment. The desire to fit in with the local community and arrange charity events and fun days is crucial.
