Mayflower – High Street, Austerfield, Doncaster – Freehold and contents – £950,000
This lovely public house is situated in the quiet, affluent village of Austerfield close to Doncaster Robin Hood airport, eight miles south east of Doncaster and 1.5 miles from the market town of Bawtry. William Bradford, one of the founding Pilgrim Fathers, was originally from Austerfield and was baptised in the nearby Helena’s Church.
The Mayflower has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment and now offers high-quality pub dining, a large wedding/function venue and a very good standard of letting accommodation. The venue already has a strong wedding trade and is all set up to grow year on year moving forward. The current owners feel that they have taken the business as far as they can and that it is now time for some fresh blood to take over.
The main bar area has some original beamed features as well as attractive fire places and a range of seating. There is a further dining space with room for 50 covers and a function facility to the rear of the property to cater for 110 guests. This is fitted out in a modern and contemporary style and has its own servery, dance floor area, its own separate entrance and private heated outside area. It is also air conditioned throughout. On the first floor, which is accessed by its own entrance, there are four high-quality, double en-suite letting rooms that were created within the former manager’s accommodation.
Each of the four rooms is named after passengers who journeyed on the Mayflower and all have elegant decor and excellent en-suite facilities. There is an enclosed beer patio area to the front with seating for 40 and a private driveway leading through to the car park, which can accommodate around 40 cars.
Andrew Spencer of Fleurets commented: “This is a beautifully appointed public house and function facility that has been created over a period of time by the current owners. It is a ready-made business with a strong trading history for a new operator and would suit either a well-funded private individual or a small group looking to run a site under management. The business is already a success but potential clearly exists to drive it further and take it to the next level.”
