The opportunity description says: “The bar serves real ale to the growing number of people who love the drink and does very well out of it.

“Located just across the road from the University of Central Lancashire Students’ Union, amongst an array of shops, eateries, clubs and concert venues, the bar is in an ideal position to attract many thousands of customers.

“The buyer of this business will be taking on a large and prestigious business with great prospects: Established at the beginning of the 80s, the pub has recently won Central Lancashire CAMRA Pub of the Year and Lancashire Evening Post Pub of the Year, bringing yet more prestige and more customers to the business.

“A business or person in the same sector could take advantage of this pubs outstanding reputation and huge popularity to build something big.”

The bar reopened as the Ale Emporium in January 2014 after Paula Bosworth and Kay Vickery closed it as Bitter Suite.
