Overview

The Griffin is a wonderful, traditional beamed stone floor pub with letting rooms nestled in the heart of Barkisland on the outskirts of Halifax. The pub comprises a main bar area with 2 smaller rooms leading off from it and through the double doors that lead to the beer garden there is an adequate sized function room. It has a good local customer base and is also popular with walkers and cyclists given it's location and with 3 car parks there is plenty of space to accommodate the variety of customers that frequent the pub. The pub also has 3 letting rooms that prove to be very popular.

This pub would ideally suit operators that have experience in building food sales and driving wet sales through regular events and can show how they have driven sales through effective networking within the local community.

If this is not the pub for you do you know someone who is? If so, let us know using our Refer a Friend scheme and if successful in being placed in the pub we will give you a £1,000! (Terms & conditions apply)

What’s expected from you:

Our pubs are at the heart of the community, bringing locals and the communities together by serving great drinks, perfect food and fantastic events. It’s a proven business-model, perfect for skilled publicans or retail manager with food experience, who can drive sales, standards and guest experience.

In addition to the £5k security deposit required for this agreement, you will need to cover legal costs (£360), and your own insurance (except building insurance, which we’ll cover). Also, you’ll want to start thinking about your team; taking care of paying them and all other employment matters.
 
Before we all sign the agreement and see you heading into a whole new life, you’ll just need to show us proof that you’ve had independent financial advice from an accountant and solicitor and have completed a sustainable business plan, in accordance with the Pubs Code. And, of course, obtain your personal licence (which we can help with) and complete your induction training.
 
It’s a five-year commitment, so you have loads of time to build the business and get it performing brilliantly!
