Pub Features

Situated in Lower Bartle in Preston, the Sitting Goose is a large, attractive stand alone building with superb kerb appeal. A central bar serves all areas of the pub and there is a large conservatory style room to the left which is used for dining. Further seating areas are located throughout and benefit from cosy open fires. The pub has around 70-80 covers. There is a fully equipped kitchen, appealing beer garden, smoking shelter and a large car park. The living accommodation consists of 4 double bedrooms, large bathroom, kitchen, lounge and an office. High standards have been maintained throughout the property and the business is ready to go.


The pub is in a prime location, with a new development of residential housing being built in the local area. It is known locally for offering fresh, home cooked food and the pub currently trades well as a destination food pub. There is potential for a new operator to change the current menu and put their own stamp on the business.  For this pub we are seeking a hands on operator, who has experience of running a busy food business.
