Agreement Type

  • Perfectly located in the centre of Abertillery
  • Low business rates
  • Huge food opportunity

A rare and exciting opportunity! The Commercial Hotel is the only traditional pub in the very centre of Abertillery close to local shops and amenities. There is an amazing transformation planned for the exterior of the pub, creating the best outside trading space in the town and this along with an enthusiastically driven licensee will breathe new life into this famous pub.

Pub Layout

The trading areas are made up of a nicely decorated comfortable bar, cosy snug/dining area, and a larger area to host events such as live music, quiz nights, darts, and pool and show live sports. The small kitchen area is currently suitable for offering a small, targeted food offer. In addition to the downstairs trading area, there is huge potential in the currently unutilised first-floor function suite. The outside trading areas will be the best in town and will become a secret hidden gem with its festooned lighting, timber pergola, and cool but traditional furnishings and will allow for outside trading all year-round ensuring the Commercial stands out from its competitors.

A traditional town centre site popular for weekend entertainment. There is huge potential for the introduction of exciting food and wide-ranging drink offer including cask ales to broaden the appeal of the pub to families and friends looking to relax in the warm and welcoming surroundings both inside and out.
