Pubs On The Market v2.0

Blue Anchor Inn Bretherton

North West

21 South Road, Leyland, Lancashire PR26 9AB, UK

The Blue Anchor is located on the main road which runs between the A59 near Tarleton and Crossens in the affluent town of Layland in Lancashire and is the only pub in its vicinity. The property in the area is expensive and very desirable with several £1m homes within the immediate vicinity. The Blue Anchor is a very strongly food led pub that heavily advertises its fantastic ‘all you can eat buffet and Sunday carvery’. Although very popular for buffet and carvery food, there is an opportunity to introduce an alternative food offer to run alongside the current offer to attract the mid-upper market food clientele. There is a large and attractive established garden to the rear, ideal for extra trade during the warmer months, with a large overflow car park.

The stated ingoing figures are correct at point of advertising. Please be aware there may be additional costs.
