Purple Emperor Details

Trading style

The pub is currently operating as a locals meeting point with occasional entertainment at weekends. The Purple Emperor has in previous years, been well known for live entertainment with a large function room, with scope to develop this further. Live sports should also be a big part of the pub to help attract more custom. Sports teams will need to be developed such as pool and darts teams. The Purple Emperor would suit an experienced licensee looking to maximise the potential especially by making use of the large function room. A back bar food operation is immediately workable however there is a possibility a value for food offer could be introduced with works to the commercial kitchen.

Trade accommodation

The pub is a one bar operation which is open plan. To the left of the pub is a pool table and darts board which is frequently used by the locals. There is also a similarly large function room with its own bar servery that could host functions, live bands and many other events. There is a large patio garden to the rear that is enclosed with a smoking shelter. The car park is shared within the precinct but there are close by parking spaces and the majority of the local customers are within walking distance.

Private accommodation

The private accommodation consists of three bedrooms with a large office (that could be converted into a fourth bedroom) with a separate lounge, a family bathroom and a separate toilet. There is also a private kitchen and a former commercial kitchen.
