The Golden Ball is an attractive, Tudor-style, wet-led pub located in the aptly named Tudor Square in Dalton in Furness, Cumbria. The pub itself is in good order having benefitted from a refurbishment a few years ago. Boasting wood panelling & flooring, open fire, and leather covered seating, it trades as a one room operation with the main bar serving the lounge and games area with TVs for sports viewing. To the rear there is a beer patio and covered smoking area. Robinsons are seeking a new licensee who can integrate into the local community and continue to drive the trade at this popular pub.

FMT barrelage: Please note that this assessment is based on the "fair maintainable trade" that can be achieved by a "reasonably efficient operator" and is not therefore a guarantee of volume or consequential sales or profit.
Similarly Historic performance, whilst a significant factor to consider, is not a guarantee of future performance of a pub and you should bear this in mind in your assessment of trading potential.
