Rutter Green Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this award winning Micro Pub, The Tap ‘n’ Barrel and live Music Venue business in Wigan, Greater Manchester. The Micro Pub is located in a prominent and highly desirable trading location within the pedestrianized, private courtyard of Jaxons Court within the centre of Wigan (although it is not a typical town centre pub – being a micro-bar in the true sense). It is surrounded by a wide variety of other independent food, retail and leisure related businesses which create a high daily footfall and much passing trade. Jaxons Court is a unique and sought after trading location known locally as the ‘Victorian Quarter’ for its atmosphere and welcoming environment. The business is adjacent to the recently rebuilt bus station as well as being within short walking distance of both Wigan North Western and Wigan Wallgate railway stations.

The micro pub and live music venue has won numerous awards over the years including Cider Pub of the Year, Pub of the Season, Local Ale Pub, Best New Cask Outlet, Consistent Quality Award and is Cask Marque accredited. The business has gained an enviable reputation from within the Wigan area and throughout the wider region. It specializes in an extensive range of Real Ales sourced from breweries throughout the Country in addition to Ciders and Gins. The bar areas are open plan and can be subdivided depending on the event or function. In addition, there is also a first floor area for a more relaxing atmosphere. The premises benefit from an exceptionally high standard of fixtures, fittings and equipment throughout, all of which are owned by the business outright. Currently the bar trades on a practically 100% ‘wet’ sales basis offering scope to introduce a wide food offering or coffee. The private courtyard is a particular asset allowing unrestricted customer access and seating.
