A HISTORIC pub on the edge of Carlisle city centre has been placed on the market. 

The Milbourne Arms is up for sale in the region of £295,000.

The pub is said to have been built in 1853, playing a huge part in serving workers in the local textile industry.

The freehold property offers an open plan trade area, a trade kitchen and yard, and a three-bedroom owner's accommodation, with Carlisle United FC and Linton Mill décor and memorabilia throughout the pub. 

The pub on 150 Milbourne St had a complete refit back in 2020. 

With net sales of around £210,000 per annum, this pub presents a 'promising investment opportunity'.

The property is being listed by Sidney & Phillips.

A spokesperson from Sidney & Phillips said: "The Millbourne Arms is a historic public house which has close ties to the local community and football club.

"Since purchasing in 2019 our clients have overseen huge renovations and investment and now offer a cosy and warm setting in addition to original features in-keeping with the history of the public house.

"It is an exciting opportunity for a single or multiple operator to take on this turnkey business which offers much potential for growth," they said.
