The Crows Nest is a traditional wet-led community pub located on the Longhill Estate in the eastern area of the city of Hull. Surrounded by residential properties and backing on to a small parade of retail businesses, the pub is in a great location with a large amount of passing trade. Approximately 21,000 residents live within a one mile radius of the pub, which demonstrates the huge potential this site has to offer.

Pub Layout

The pub offers a traditional two-room layout, with central bar serveries and seperate entrances from the front of the building. The main bar area has a mix of fixed and loose seating, TV screens & jukebox, with a dedicated games area to the rear featuring pool table & darts oche. The lounge bar is a large open-plan room, again with a mix of seating, TV screens and a raised seating area that could easily be utilised as a stage for live entertainment. Through to the rear of the lounge is access to the impressive beer garden, with a large lawned area, planted flower beds and covered smoking shelter. Externally to the side of the pub is a good-sized car park with enough space for 10-15 vehicles.

The Crows Nest is a 100% wet-led business that is currently home to both pool and darts teams and is well supported by the local community. The pub has a strong regular entertainment programme including bingo nights, karaoke and the occasional live artist. Although there is no catering kitchen there is sufficient space to introduce a simple back bar food offer especially in the lounge, which would bring an additional income stream. The popular beer garden is a great space to host fun days and community events during the summer months.

The private accommodation is located on the first floor of the pub, is in good order and comprises three bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and bathroom.
