Pub Layout

Entrance is via the small external drinking area at the front of the pub and leads directly into the open plan trade space. The U-shaped bar servery is centrally located and allows easy service to all areas of the pub. To the left-hand side of the pub is both fixed and loose seating and a stage area. To the rear, a currently unused area which could house either a pool table or lend itself  to a dining area, the catering kitchen is accessed via this area. The right-hand side of the pub has space for more seating and should house the dart board and gaming machine.


Trading Style:

The Dutch Birds is a community pub with a loyal core customer base. The potential here lies in creating a strong entertainment schedule which includes live music and karaoke, welcoming pool and darts teams and offering a simple food menu. With a strong rhythm of the week, which is well marketed the Dutch Birds can cater for various clientele throughout the week.
