The property is extremely well located, being at the crossroads of Newbiggin Road and Durdar Road, approximately 3.5 miles south of Carlisle City Centre, 2.5 miles west of Junction 42 of the M6 motorway and 3 miles east of the commuter village of Dalston. The property sits on the edge of the village settlement of Durdar within close proximity to Carlisle Racecourse which is owned and operated by The Jockey Club. The racecourse is popular not only throughout the flat and jump season but also as a place for major events such as a concerts, weddings and corporate venue function hire. The Cumberland Show grounds are within approximately 1.5/2 miles of the property which is prominently positioned in a highly visible location benefitting from a significant amount of passing traffic.
The property comprises a country public house which was substantially refurbishment approximately 5 years ago. The building has been finished to a high standard specification with quality fixtures, fittings and soft furnishings throughout. From the main covered entrance adjoining the rear customer car park, the property opens out into a principal dining area providing covers for up to 65 people. A bar servery, kitchen and toilet facilities are situated off.
The first floor is currently used for office/staff/storage but could be a 1/2 bedroom managers flat with living/ dining and kitchen areas being accessed internally from within the property.
Outside, there is external seating bordering the south and west elevations along with integral bin storage and car parking.
All mains services are connected to the property which also benefits from gas central heating.
An opportunity exists for either a new or existing business, or individual(s), to rent The Black Lion. Pitching itself at the mid-upper end of the gastro pub market, the property (and name) offers a fantastic opportunity to walk into and begin trading immediately with all the fixtures, fittings and equipment in situ to trade and operate a business of this nature.
Further scope exists to expand on the current British and European cuisine menus. The property has been tastefully decorated to a very high standard, hence the ability to offer immediate occupation. The opportunity would ideally suit a chef patron, husband and wife or partnership-led team looking to establish a name for themselves and strong presence within local and regional hospitality circles.
The property is offered to let on a new lease for a term of years to be agreed on full repairing and insuring terms, subject to periodic review.
The property will be let on the basis of vacant possession but will include all items currently set out and incorporated within the property.
