Building layout and design
The Cheshire Brewhouse operates from a single storey commercial unit with parking immediately outside and a spacious beer garden to the rear. Inside, the bar area offers seating for around twenty and is presented traditionally with bespoke bar servery to the rear and cosy log burner. There is an impressive brew room fitted with ten bbl brewers barrels, racking, bottling machine and much more. The brewery is open for viewing and this generates much interest from customers. There is also a cool room and storage area along with toilet facilities. All areas are presented well and electric metal roller shutters are in place for additional security.
This leasehold business occupies a superb trading position and has a huge base of regular customers along with a superb reputation. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the introduction of sales staff to market the business for and generate more business to business sales – perhaps supplying to local supermarkets and off licenses. New opening hours and days could also be of great benefit. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised.
