Cleator Moor, CA25 5HP

Please leave your details and our team will be in touch. * fields are required


Moffats is centrally located on the main street of Cleator Moor which is hard working small community town in the county of Cumbria and within the boundaries of the historic county of Cumberland with a population of approx. 6,700. Situated just four miles away from the costal town of Whitehaven, Cleator Moor benefits from not only locals and fans of the towns football and rugby teams but passing holiday makers as well.

Pub Layout

Moffats is an open plan pub with four different areas providing a mixture of seating. You will find traditional window seats along with fixed seating, bar stools and tables. To the right as you walk in you will find the bar which services all areas. This traditional pub could be in need of internal improvement and decoration with the possibility of a slight investment for a sparkle depending on the right licensee. To the rear of the pub you will find a small courtyard which offers a smoking solution.

Moffats is the definition of a traditional community pub, providing a warm welcome and a committed clientele. This pub offers a selection of lagers, spirits and soft drinks. With being the only pub so centrally located, Moffats has a huge potential to make more of its offer, whether it be entertainment, live sports or cask.

Private Accommodation

Separately accessed from outside of the pub, a stair case takes you to the first floor accommodation which is currently used as the private accommodation. This space is more than generous and could even have the potential to be converted in to letting rooms for additional income, offering somewhere for holiday makers of Whitehaven and surrounding areas somewhere to rest their heads. Comprising: Good sized living spaces including lounge and kitchen, five bedrooms along with a bathroom. Ideal for single occupancy, a couple or even a family.

I am looking for someone with experience in the trade who knows what it takes and is willing to commit to running a successful local pub. Ideally, I would like someone who knows the area and the locals who can keep the existing clientele and also generate a new wave of custom. I’m looking for someone with drive and who is willing to get involved with the community to open up new avenues, we need fresh ideas and an individual or team who will engage with the customers. There is a possible investment planned for internal décor depending on the right licensee.
