Pub Layout

As expected from the nature of this periodic pub the inside has a traditional and welcoming feel. The main bar servery has a good range of products including a great array of cask ales which are very popular with the locals. There is scope to develop the product range in line with current market trades including developing a more vibrant spirit range. The front of the pub has two snug rooms which collectively seat around 50 – 60 diners/ drinkers, the cosy log fire is a welcome

addition to the character of this pub. The fixtures and fittings are an eclectic mix of both loose and fixed and are in keeping with the current style of the pub. Towards the rear of the pub is the ladies toilets which lead onto a paved patio area which has a small, covered smoking solution, this area also has an outbuilding where in keeping with the tradition of the building, houses the gents’ toilets.

There is a rear secondary beer garden. At the front of the pub there is parking for cars, although given its location most locals enjoy a leisurely walk to and from the pub. The front beer garden is a real asset with a very unique, this grassed area could easily be transformed for events and is a real sun trap during those summer months.

The Duke of Wellington is a warm and welcoming community pub, with a wide range of products to cater for all palates with a strong focus on cask ale and a simple food offer. It has a good reputation and has been popular for a variety of sports teams and live music of a weekend, which the new tenant would need to look to reintroduce. There is huge growth to be unlocked in terms of beer festivals and community events in the spectacular beer garden.
