began to run into problems earlier this year and received a visit from licensing officials and police at the end of February.
Officers said people had raised fears about public disorder and management of the premises.
After the Jarvises moved to Essex the pub was run for a short time by Don McCrae.
The Burgesses now hope someone will take over as tenant on a lease of around three to five years.
A number of potential tenants have looked at the premises but no-one has committed as yet to taking it over.
Andy Burgess said: “The pub has incredible potential for food, which is what the last tenants tried to capitalise on.
“It needs a bit of work doing at the moment but it could be a very nice little business for someone who fancies a change.
“It’s in a very prominent location and the beer garden has lovely views over the Duddon Estuary.”
The brothers bought the pub in 2000, and Chris, 50, acted as landlord for five years before handing on to the Jarvises.
Bedfordshire-based chartered accountant Andy, 43, takes care of the books.
Dale and Alexandra Jarvis, formerly of the Black Cock Inn in Broughton, ran the pub for 18 months before leaving in April.
The pub, set prominently just off the A595, has had a number of extensions added over the years.
It now boasts an 80 seater restaurant, a function room, beer garden, conservatory and eight bedrooms, as well as the original 17th century bar area.
Elaine Knowles, manager of the Broughton Information Centre, has taken numerous calls from visitors to the town enquiring about the pub.
She said: “It would be good for Broughton if it was back up and running.
“It’s in a good location for both local people and visitors, the sooner it’s open again the better.”
If you are interested in running one of Furness’ landmark pubs call Andy Burgess on 07702 360341.
