JKs Bar operates with a Premises Licence which permits the sale of alcohol for consumption on and off the premises between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 a.m. the following morning each day, except Sundays when the hours are 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. the following morning. This also permits the exhibition of films, performance of live music, playing of recorded music, and light refreshments. Seriously interested parties should make their own enquiries directly of the Local Authority Licensing Department.


The lease is for a ten year term from 29 September, 2019, ending on 28 September, 2029. The rent is £32,000 per annum with three yearly rent reviews. The tenant is responsible for all internal repairs and decoration, and there is provision for a Service Charge to be paid to the Landlord in respect of the maintenance, repair, insurance, etc. of the building as a whole.


The outlet has a capacity of 190 persons. It generally trades all day, throughout the year, although variable depending upon how busy the town is. The business is fundamentally a wet driven business, with no catering offering at all.

It is extremely popular as a karaoke venue on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and in addition has a regular DJ working.

Averaged over the year the outlet generates sales of around £15,000 gross per week.

It is a highly profitable business, for a partnership of two as the operators.

Detailed trading and financial information will be supplied to seriously interested parties, following inspection.


The property has an energy performance asset rating of C 68. A full copy of the EPC is available upon request.
