Brawn’s Den

Durham, DH7 8UG

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

OR CALL 01244 321 171 FOR MORE DETAILS

The Brawn’s Den is an exceptional pub opportunity that really has to be seen to be believed. The pub underwent a huge investment and transformation in 2017 lifting the pub from your average local to a high-quality heart of the community public house. This well-established outlet is now available to let and would be a fantastic  opportunity for any quality operator to pursue. The pub is located in the agricultural and historical ex-mining village of Brandon, on the corner of a densely populated residential area. Brandon is situated a short distance, South-West of Durham City Centre with a regular bus service running daily. The pub facilitates the local community from the good quality local housing estate as well as drawing customers from the surrounding Durham catchment areas with people travelling over 30 miles to visit this superb pub.

Pub Layout

On entering the Brawn’s Den, you are welcomed by an outstanding décor which attracts locals and those from further afield. There is an impressive size, central bar server situated in the heart of the pub which services all areas. The trading areas are separated into different sections with their fixtures and fittings, from poser tables on the tiled floor, to fixed seating for diners in the carpeted areas and mis-match loose seating on the solid wooden floor. The pub has been made up in a very much rustic shabby chic way, with distressed wood on the bar, exposed beams and stone chimney breast. The Brawn’s Den is set on a huge plot, benefiting from not only a generous beer garden with patio areas and picnic benches, but also offers a car park for over twenty vehicles.

The Brawn’s Den has something to offer for everyone, starting at house spirits ranging up to top shelf quality, including an impressive gin offer. The attractive bar is home to a number of hand pulls for cask ale and also entertains a strong variety of lagers and ciders, there is also a good selection of soft drinks, teas and coffees. They currently have three menus available; Light Bites, Main Menu, Children’s Menu. All three menus have a variety of options and all of which cater for all dietary requirements.

Ideally this pub could be suited to an ex-managed house couple, one with a kitchen background and the other acting as the host front of house with exceptional customer service skills.  Experience in cask ale would be an advantage. We are looking for a couple with the ability to engage well with the locals and drive footfall late into the evening. The other half of the team would be experienced in all aspects of the kitchen, from the production of great pub favourites as well as producing a good selection for all dietary persuasion. The ability to manage costs and waste as well as a profitable menu composition is essential.
