The Butchers Arms is a detached, traditional building located in the heart of Audley, which is a rural village located in a suburb of the Potteries, situated on the B5500, the former A52 road, just south of the A500. The village is approximately five minutes from the M6 motorway and a 20 minute drive into the centre of Stoke-on-Trent. Also located in the village are shops and businesses as well as the village church opposite.
The outlet enjoys three separate rooms which are all in reasonable order, traditionally styled with beams and log fires which creates a warm and friendly feel. On entering through the front door, you are greeted by the bar servery. This area is used as the main drinking area by the locals and can seat up to 30 people. This space also includes the darts board and access to the ladies and gents toilets. To the left side is an additional trading area which currently contains the pool table and could be used for pool nights and teams. To the rear of the pub is a comfortable lounge, from here you can access the catering kitchen. On the first floor, there is a function room which can accommodate up to 60 people and benefits from its own bar and separate toilets. To the rear of the pub is a smoking shelter that has potential to create an outside drinking area. Currently the front of the pub is used as a drinking area with benches. Adjacent to the pub is a car park for up to 20 cars.
The Butchers Arms is a community pub with fantastic potential to become the hub of the community. The pub should cater to the wider community offering sports teams, live entertainment, weekly quiz nights as well as live sports. The pub also boasts a large function room which can be utilised for all occasions.
The private accommodation is spacious and consists of three bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and bathroom all in reasonable order.
