The Bird Inn is a prominent circuit pub that stands as a terraced plot in a parade of other licensed units in the busy Concord area of Washington. The pub was refurbished to a high standard in 2016 and proves very popular at weekends with trade spiking over the usual Friday and Saturday nights.

Pub Layout

The Bird Inn is a one room L shaped bar. The bar has a designated sports area for pool and darts. There are multiple TV screens for transmitting Sky/BT Sports action throughout the bar. There is a DJ booth and space near the bar area for some “dancing on a Friday Night!” To the rear of the pub is a secured beer yard with its own bar servery. This proves very popular seasonally and in a World Cup year will be a real draw for some alfresco viewing. The pub retails an excellent bottle range and has the facility to offer cask ales. New World spirits can be marketed on a superb back bar cocktail fitting. The ladies and gents toilets are also in excellent condition.

The Bird Inn has a very wide audience depending on the time of day; everything from a relaxing drink during the day to the higher energy weekend nights. In between there are pool and darts teams to cater for as well as a regular quiz night. Majority of trade will fall over the weekend and this will centre around a good choice of DJ’s and live entertainment along with live sporting fixtures.

The Bird Inn benefits from four large bedrooms, bathroom, large kitchen and living area. All well-appointed and in good condition.

The Bird is a thriving community pub with a core group of loyal customers.

Clearly there is huge footfall but stamping some individuality and an independent feel to the venue will set the Bird apart from its local competitors.
