The Anchor is a high quality village local set in the affluent area of Hutton, just outside Preston. The site has just had an internal refurbishment, turning it into a quality local pub. We are looking for an experienced licensee with a clear vision to grow the business through a strong
retail offer and high service standards. The refurbishment included a full internal redecoration, new flooring including timber, tiles and carpet helping to define trading areas. The bar serveries have been enhanced, and there is a new food service area added alongside a central food service area. Externally new signage will help the pub make an impact on the local competition. There is also be a drinking area at the front of the site, with seating to attract summertime trade and encourage al fresco dining.

A strong offer is needed in the Anchor with food being at the forefront. The successful licensee will introduce a good quality, modern, locally sourced menu, alongside a good range of cask ale and world lagers. The site also has the opportunity to develop a large function room which will enable the operator to gain custom through, parties, weddings and hiring the room out for meetings.

The Anchor is situated just off a busy A road in the prosperous village of Hutton, just outside Preston. Local demographics suggest there are around 54,000 potential customers residing within a 3 mile radius of the pub. This is just the over 18’s so the potential to attract families is even greater. Hutton itself is an affluent area with a high percentage of locals fitting into the professional demographic. High quality world lagers and cask ale can be used to attract custom. There is a high amount of competition in the local area therefore a strong retail offer with great service standards is required.
