Pub Layout

The Bull & Bush trades from an open plan, L-shaped bar which is located to the right side of the pub, with the catering kitchen located to the left.

Also on the right, is a door leading out to the front landscaped garden with traditional pub benches. It also benefits from two large gardens at the back of the property which act as fabulous beer gardens; this space is maximised in the Summer months. This is completed by a smoking shelter and a large car park for up to twenty cars

The pub has a strong and varied rhythm of the week, with sports & entertainment featuring heavily. The previous tenants have done an excellent job in embedding the pub within the local  community being the hub for numerous charity events, its is essential that the new tenants hold the community close to their hearts and continue with this. There is an opportunity to revisit the small but functional food offer currently available at the pub and look to cater for a wider audience we have a great in house team to help support with this, thinking outside the box to offer something a little different from the normally pub grub mid week and some week night food offerings would be welcomed. Sky & TNT are a must at the pub as well as supporting and developing sports teams  ( ten in total, football , dominos & darts) which are already in place. Live entertainment is popular at the weekend with monthly bands and weekly DJ’s , seasonal external family fun days. The drinks range is value wet led with both cask & keg on offer, good spirit mix on offer
