Arkwirghts is located on the main Plungington Road, through Preston neighbouring a number of local businesses and shops, including having a mixed calibre of chimney pots in the surrounding areas. The pub itself benefits from being less than a mile away from Preston City Centre and Preston North End F.C ground. Preston is a densely populated area with an eclectic mix of businesses and houses with fantastic links to the M6 motorway.

Pub Layout

Arkwrights is a traditional style pub with two trading areas all served by the central bar servery along with a function room located on the first floor. The main bar has a large trading area with a mixture of fixed and loose furniture. Steps up from the main bar lead onto a raised open plan area, completely visible from the bar which houses two pool tables. The function room on the first floor is a great space for private functions and parties and also has a separate area for buffets.

Arkwrights is a traditional wet led community local pub with an advantage of a function room for hire. There is huge potential to increase business here with functions and private parties, with the right licensee we would look to improve the kitchen upstairs to make this plausible. There is also the opportunity to grow the the entertainment offer here with more live music and a strong rhythm of the week. There is already a dedicated following of locals who support the trade when they go in for team games such as pool.

There is no private accommodation at this pub, however there is an office located on the first floor.

I am looking for a community focused and passionate licensee who is willing to push the current boundaries and develop the offer as a whole. We will be looking to keep the already dedicated locals and also offer something for a broader range of clientele by way of improving the rhythm of the week and marketing.  Games teams are an integral part of the business and the licensee should be enthusiastic and supportive about this aspect.
