Foaming Tankard

Bloomsbury Street, B7 5BX

Please leave your details and our team will be in touch. * fields are required


The Foaming Tankard is a well-positioned corner site at the end of a row of well used local shops in the area of Nechells, Birmingham. The Foaming Tankard is large site comprising of a large, well supported bar, and an equally large lounge/function room at the rear of the pub. The pub is well situated in the middle of a large housing estate with great footfall.

Pub Layout

Comprising of two separate trading areas with the serving bar linking both rooms. The bar is a large well decorated area with a pool table being central to what goes on in the room. The lounge/function room has been recently decorated. It is a good sized room with a stage for bands and discos and with the right licensee this is an area we are keen to develop as it has the potential to be an area for dinners, but also a warm comfortable room for people to relax in. The ladies and gents are situated between both rooms also providing access to the living accommodation.
The catering kitchen is situated between the bar and the lounge providing easy access for food to customers no matter which room they choose to eat in.
Unfortunately there is no “outside” drinking area at the Foaming Tankard at present, but with the right licensee we would look to seek a pavement license to enable customers to drink outside the front of the pub whilst watching the world go by.

The pub trades as a community drinks focused business, with a strong emphasis on sports teams such as darts and pool which is complimented with live televised sports. There is a huge opportunity to engage the local community more with music and social gatherings such as quizzes during the week.  Re-visiting the drinks offer in line with the current market trends will also attract a wider range of clientele.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms, a living room, bathroom, toilet and kitchen area.

Annual Rent: £14,000

Security Deposit: £5,000

Working Capital: £2,000

Stock: £3,000

Fixtures and Fittings: Upon Valuation  – funding options available for the right licensee.

Tie:        All drinks categories are tied.  For fully funded licensees on long term agreements, we offer free-of-tie options for certain drinks categories in exchange for an annual fee.

Training: £250 plus VAT
