To the right you will find the bar which runs along through to the lounge area with high stools. The white tiled back bar and floating shelves embrace the urban trendy feel which is incorporated by the variety of premium lagers, spirits and wine offer currently available. Walking alongside the bar into the lounge area, complete with fixed and loose seating offer a warmer but still trendy decor for those quieter times. The site could be described as a two room operation with the option to use the lounge area as a function room however privacy would be limited due to the open plan separation of the rooms. TV’s adorn the walls in both rooms offering a very competitive sports offer establishing this site as a sports venue. The beer garden is located at the front of the building and is complete with benched seating and large barrels for decoration in-keeping with the trendy urban feel inside.

The fully stocked bar offers a range of cask ales, lagers, wines, spirits and soft drinks along with nibbles such as crisps and nuts. The separation of the main room can house separate functions currently giving the ability to host live entertainment or encourage a quieter area on those busier nights however this is a great opportunity to grow and enhance the business further.
