Pub location on map


The Red Dragon sits on the main high street through the village of Kirby Lonsdale and is a part of a terrace of properties. Its white painted exterior presents a pub that has a very long history. It is well suited to take advantage of lunchtime and evening food business. The old-world atmosphere is instantly apparent when entering the pub with wooden beams and real fires. The pub also benefits from 9 lettings rooms and a small meeting/function room on the first floor. Robinsons are ideally seeking an experienced operator with letting room and catering experience to build upon the accommodation trade and maintain the high quality food offer alongside a quality drinks menu.

Trading Accommodation

There is a single servery that is part of a lounge that extends to the rear. It has approx. 50 covers and served from a small but well-equipped kitchen. There are 9 letting bedrooms (only 2 en-suite) that occupy the first and second floors. The rooms have recently been refurbished to a high standard. There is a function/ meeting room (30 people) accessed from the first floor.

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.
