Pub Layout

There are two trading areas each with their own bar. There is a dart’s board and pool table in the lounge with a mixture of recently refurbished fixed and loose seating. This area is suitable for drinkers or people wishing to stand.  The bar area has plenty of space for drinkers and can also accommodate up to 30 diners. The catering kitchen is of adequate size to comfortably serve the covers within both bars and has been used to do so. The pub and its fixtures and fittings are all in a good condition, most only having been refreshed in the last 12 months. Externally there is a small outside drinking area to the front of the pub.

This is a traditional community pub which benefits from local support. The Farmers is home to a pool and darts team and there is also the opportunity to continue a good food offering, launch cask ales and provide regular entertainment. This would further increase turnover and enable the business to cater for all of its possible clientele. Admiral Taverns are looking for an enthusiastic, community driven licensee who can drive this business forward and maximise the pub’s potential.
