The pub in Chorlton to which you refer, will be losing it's arse, as will the one advertised for sale in Manchester.
You don't know that without looking at the books. It's enough of a turnover to make a decent profit but it depends on many other factors.

It's not a huge amount of money when you consider that drinks on average might be £4 and they might serve 100 meals a day. I wouldn't be surprised if Font, The Bar, Elektrik, Parlour, etc, serve three or four times that amount of covers a day over the weekend.
Fair enough , I had ignored food. I still don't believe that any of the pubs mentioned would average anywhere near £30K a week and won't do until someone comes up with some actual numbers to prove it !
