Are you looking for a brew pub? This could be the ideal way of running your own pub and brewery by taking over an existing business resulting from a retirement sale. In the brewers own words:
Hi, I'm Andy Pickering, I own and operate the oldest brewpub combining the second oldest brewery in South Yorkshire based near Doncaster.
I have run the place for 30 years and on reaching 60, I have decided to semi-retire.
I am freehold so I could sell the equipment and premises but would prefer to see someone else carry it on if that were feasible.
I wouldn't be looking for a prohibitive rent ( if that were to be a better option than sale) as I appreciate the difficulties faced, but for fresh people with new ideas I am convinced there is an opportunity superior to the usual model of renting premises on an industrial estate, investing heavily in equipment and six months down the line looking desperately for an outlet, we have them all rolled into one. There would need to be some changes to bring things to a more modern spec, I would assume there would be scope for profitable benefits all round.
