Business Opportunity - Licensee Wanted for Ye Olde Kings Head, Gurnett


Countryside living with suburban convenience. This newly refurbished pub benefits from a £130,000 investment made in Autumn 2015.

Ye Olde Kings Head is an historic inn which has been sympathetically refurbished for the 21st century. It represents a chance to work in a pub similar in outlook to Greene King: both forward-looking and respectful of its heritage.

The pub was fully refitted inside and out just 8 months ago, helping make a trip here a real treat for visitors from the local canal and the various local caravan sites. The location and enviable kerb appeal means trade can be very strong, and a tantalising lunch and evening menu will work wonders in bringing in the local and visiting guests who can also enjoy one of the six cask ales.

Annual rent: £24,500 per annum

The picturesque market town of Macclesfield is a popular destination for the many tourists who are drawn to the charming countryside, scenic canal, and it's history as the centre of the British Silk Trade. Situated on the edge of Macclesfield, but surrounded by countryside, the pubs location enables countryside living with the convenient amenities of a large town.

There are many excellent schools in the area with attainment exceeding the national average. Macclesfield is also home to The King's Independent Grammar School, one of the Telegraph's top 200 schools in the UK.


The recent renovation has retained the period features, whilst creating an inviting, modern ambience. The two trade areas have real open fires, wooden beams, and original exposed stonework creating a welcoming, warm and relaxing atmosphere. The one bar serves the two trade areas, reducing the number of staff that need to be available to provide the service guests deserve. The good quality outside seating area is popular in the summer months with the walkers and visitors to the canal. A reputation as a dog friendly pub only adds to this.


Redecorated as part of the recent refurbishment, the accommodation consists of two bedrooms, lounge, bathroom and kitchen.
