About this opportunity

A very rare opportunity has arisen to run a well-established thriving pub in the heart of Ratby.

The Railway has been in terrific growth since Pam and Meg, mother and daughter took over back in 2018. It treats the locals of Ratby to a well ran drinkers' pub and serves as a great venue for locals of all ages to catch up and socialise.

Pam and Meg who have been at the centre of its success, leave, with a heavy heart, a very stable business that is currently thriving in what can be described as a difficult climate. They leave to grow another venture Meg-a cakes also situated in Ratby selling delicious, sweet treats and in doing so leave a legacy of accomplishment in the centre of the village.

This historic inn once served as the original booking office for the Leicester to Swanningcote railway in 1832 and a plaque and map are still there to commemorate its history. Inside, customers are treated to a wide range of sports shown both on Sky and BT sports with well-situated large screens throughout the pub. There is a main bar area and a snug both served by one central bar. To the rear is an outdoor drinking area seating 20 people.

The pub boasts a 5* TripAdvisor with one review stating “Amazing local pub. Great for couples, friends or families.”

This is a wonderful opportunity to take over a thriving business and carry on driving it forward. It would suit someone who enjoys driving wet lead sales and understands how important a good local pub can be to its community.
