Blue Bell

Amble, NE65 0LU

Please leave your details and our team will be in touch. * fields are required


The Blue Bell is located on the main Northumberland coastal road that stretches from Newcastle to Scotland hugging the coastline. The area is very popular in high season with visitors to the attractive Northumberland coastline and its attractions. The town of Amble is by and large historical with a very working-class demographic. Currently the nearby industrial estate is being developed with the infrastructure being put in place for a Morrisons supermarket and additional brand-new housing. There is a Marina that attracts boat owners and there are a few boatyards that service these customer’s needs. Amble has major caravan parks and as a result has quite a vibrant high street with several restaurants, pubs, bars, cafes and independent shops. The catchment area is certainly growing with many properties being built in the last 5 years.

Pub Layout

The pub consists of two main trading rooms. The main bar is well presented and keeps the core locals in a cosy community hub. There is easily space for thirty seated and a further twenty standing. The games room which can easily double up as function room for small events, houses a pool table and a darts board and is the home for the pubs ten pool and darts teams that play on nearly every night of the week. There is a third space which isn’t currently utilised which could easily be used for a small café and further functions.

The pub has been run over the last 14 years exceptionally well by committed local people. The pub operates as a wet led outlet driven by its ten sports teams. The pub is very much a local’s pub run by local people. The staff are excellent and have built great relationships with the customers.

The pub would welcome a couple who see the opportunity of working with the existing wet trade and looking to develop a small food / B&B opportunity. The pub sits slightly on the edge of town so will need to create a robust offer to draw both locals and visitors up to the pub. Ideally the new licensee should be local in order to immediately have the trust and support of the existing customer base. There is an opportunity to take the retail offer to a new level by engaging in the range of modern retail vehicles such as Facebook / Twitter/ Instagram / Website etc.
