Pub Layout

The pub consists of one open plan room, with a traditional beam effect ceiling, it has small clusters of fixed seating strategically placed to enable the guests to watch the screens. There is a small commercial kitchen and the cellar that is underground is accessed via the bar. To the side is a small enclosed beer garden which is a welcome addition in summer months and a comfortable area for smokers


The pub is currently drinks focused and is predominantly driven by consumers looking for value drink during the day, coupled with a solid Friday and Saturday night trade consisting of karaoke and discos. The pub should operate a strong ‘Rhythm of the Week’ alongside a strong football following to support both the local teams and the Sky & BT fixture lists. Whilst it is a town centre pub it does have the support of a local darts team, poker team and football team. There is space to service a small hand held food offering on key events to maximise sales.
