British Arms

Wellingborough, NN9 5PR

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


The British Arms sits just off of the centre of Irthlingborough in a residential area with plenty of housing surrounding the pub. Irthlingborough is a small town just outside of Wellingborough and close to Northampton. The town is used by commuters into Northampton and also has numerous factories and logistics companies in the area which account for a lot of the employment.

Pub Layout

The trading area is all on the ground floor with an open plan style. As you enter the front door the toilets are to the left, entrance to the large garden is directly in front of you and the bar is on your right. There is a horseshoe shaped bar that accommodates the main bar area and pool room to the side which is open to viewing from the main bar area. There is a large well kept beer garden to the rear of the pub. There is no car park but there is plenty of street parking close by.

The British Arms is predominently a drinks focused pub and very much at the heart of the community with darts and pool teams playing in the leagues. The pub does have some opportunity for snacks and simple meals to generate a multiple income stream.

Private Accommodation

There is a large private accommodation area above the pub consisting of four bedrooms, separate bathroom and toilet, kitchen and a large lounge.

The pub would benefit from a licensee that can really become part of the local community and attract business through various marketing tools including Social Media.  The pub has a good customer base with Pool and Darts teams however success will come from a range of activities such as quiz nights and live music which will mean that the licensee is ensuring regular custom throughout the week.

Admiral Taverns are looking to invest which should support the licensee in driving new customers into the British Arms.  The successful applicant will need to be passionate and engaging and be able to execute a successful marketing plan.
