Popular Lockwood pub looking for new owners
Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has been instructed to sell the Shoulder of Mutton, a traditional Victorian pub located in Lockwood, West Yorkshire, approximately one mile from Huddersfield town centre.
The detached two-storey pub features a central fitted bar and dining area with capacity for 70 covers, plus two private dining rooms. The property also benefits from an additional space on the first floor which is currently used as a snooker room but can also operate as a functions room for up to 20 guests. Externally, the site also comprises a small beer garden, car parking spaces, and an adjoining family home, providing owner’s accommodation with three bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, and bathroom.
A well-known wet led establishment, the Shoulder of Mutton was one of the first pubs in Huddersfield to be featured in the Campaign for Real Ale guide and is popular in the local community. The site sits in an accessible location, near to Lockwood railway station and in close proximity to other surrounding towns.
Sam Ashton, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale comments, “After nine years of ownership, our client is now looking to sell to pursue retirement. The pub has a strong history in the area and with some re-investment and developing the pub’s potential, there is plenty of room for development. The property is also suitable for expansion for further trade space or for the possibility of residential conversion, subject to planning consent.”
Christie & Co is offering both the freehold and leasehold opportunities with a freehold asking price of £250,000 Offers Invited and a leasehold asking price of Nil Premium with an annual rent of £25,000.
