Providing expert property advice to the leisure sector 

Your property is the heart of your business, and your biggest asset. As demand for different experiences changes, we help you to respond proactively and adapt your facilities to attract and retain customers.

Our experience working with local cafes to national pub chains means we have the tools to help you streamline building management, pre-empt practical issues, and negotiate fair business rates, improving your profitability.

Why choose us? 

We understand leisure property

It takes years of experience to acquire, lease or dispose of leisure facilities such as pubs, hotels and entertainment venues. That’s because their value is not a direct result of the size and condition of the property: it also depends on unique factors, from local footfall and seasonal shifts in demand, to the presence of competitors in the area. Our valuation teams have extensive experience of determining what factors are at play, so you have the detail you need to grow, develop and repurpose your facilities, and the evidence to challenge high business rates.

We pride ourselves on our strong industry knowledge, particularly in the hospitality sector. Our professional and experienced staff are on hand to help you address challenges as they arise, and plan effectively for a profitable and resilient business.

Rates advisory  

Business rates advice for leisure and hospitality
