The Adelphi Beer Engine is a large building located on a corner plot in a prominent position on the main road into Blackburn town centre. It is situated opposite the recently upgraded Cathedral square close to the main railway station and to the Morrison’s supermarket. Blackburn has recently undergone a major regeneration with many hotels and restaurants being built which drives further footfall to the town with a number of new restaurants and leisure outlets. The busy New Mall Shopping Centre has recently been built and features lots of major shops and to the rear of the Adelphi the old Lancashire Telegraph building is undergoing renovation and conversion in to 68 apartments. Blackburn is a prosperous and ever growing town in Lancashire and lies around ten miles from Preston and twenty miles from Manchester. It has a population of approximately 106,000.
The outlet trades from a central bar servicing the large open plan lounge with an area for pool and darts as well as zoned areas that can offer a quieter place to enjoy the atmosphere. On entering, the bar servery is located to the left side of the pub and is surrounded by plenty of seating and can cater for up to 60 people. There is also a games area to the left of the pub with a pool table and darts area. The catering kitchen is located behind the bar and is partly equipped. The ladies and gents toilets are located to the right side of the pub. The pub is in good condition however the new licensee may wish to put their own stamp on the pub to create a new feel to the pub and welcome in old and new customers.
The Adelphi Beer Engine is a town centre pub that benefits from both day and night time trade. Food has previously been served from the small galley kitchen adjacent to the bar servery and there is scope to introduce an value for money food offer which will generate further income into the business. The pub currently offers occasional entertainment however there is an opportunity here to develop it by introducing karaoke and live bands as well as a number of sports teams such as pool and darts. The outlet already benefits from big screen TVs featuring live sports.
The private accommodation is located on the first floor and consists of three bedrooms, large lounge, office, kitchen and bathroom with a separate toilet which are all in good order.
