Commercial Mortgages for Pubs

The pub sector is beginning to thrive once again and there has been a rise in trading public houses for the first time in a decade.

UK drinkers are developing a new-found love of craft beverages and are embracing pubs as a feature of community life. Entrepreneurial landlords are targeting well located pubs and increasing profit lines, by diversifying their business model to include strong food offerings, letting rooms and hosting events. Presenting opportunities for both first time buyers and experienced operators, especially with corporate operators disposing tenanted sites.

Lender Appetite 

There are is an abundance of public houses in the UK and the supply of good-quality premises is generally plentiful. The same can be said for the types of pub available, ranging from city pubs to country Inn’s. Including offerings from food to entertainment, and with a variety of leasehold or freehold premises.

Whichever option you have in mind, Christie Finance will help you get the funding you need to purchase or lease the pub you want.
