The Hare & Hounds, situated in the sought after conservation village of Burton Leonard, Harrogate, has come to market through Fleurets with a guide price of £450k.
The pub is also located within easy reach of the surrounding centres of Harrogate, Ripon, Knaresborough and Boroughbridge and set within open rolling countryside.
Hare & Hounds is a traditional village inn thought to date from the 19th century. Having owned the Hare & Hounds for over 10 years, current owner Rob Gilpin has decided that, with a young growing family and his other pub near Northallerton taking increasing amounts of his time, it is time to sell.
The site benefits from a range of bar and dining facilities, offering a combined total of 85 covers. Furthermore there is a large four bedroom private apartment, car park and beer garden as well as the added benefit of agreed planning permission to add six letting bedrooms.
Nick Thomas of Fleurets is marketing the pub’s freehold. He commented, “The availability of the Hare & Hounds provides a great opportunity for enthusiastic operators to acquire a village freehouse and restaurant which, whilst currently closed, has shown historic trading levels of in excess of £400,000 net of VAT per annum.
'Now with planning consent for six letting bedrooms, there is great scope for new owners to develop the trade and enjoy the benefits of living and working in this beautiful part of North Yorkshire.”
