The Foredyke is a detached pub located next to the North Point Shopping Centre in Bransholme. Clientele is made up of blue and white collar workers and it benefits from being surrounded by housing thanks to its central location on the Bransholme estate.
On entering through the main door, you enter the bar which is the main drinking area. The bar servery is located to the right side and to the far-left hand side is a pool and darts area. Surrounding the bar and sports area is fixed and loose seating for up to 50 covers. Located by the bar servery is a corridor which leads into a lounge/function room which is unused at present however this could be easily marketed to cater for birthdays, christenings and funerals as it is separate to the main drinking area. The catering kitchen is located to the right side of the bar servery. There is a large free car park located to the front of the pub that is shared with the shopping centre.
Admiral Taverns has taken the decision to close the Foredyke in order for a refurbishment to take place. The vision for this pub to create a quality community pub offering a wide range of drinks and a traditional value for money food offer. The pub should cater to the wider community opening from the early hours to offer a breakfast and coffee menu which will attract the day time shoppers. Food should be served throughout the day into the early evening coupled with some themed nights such as curry and steak nights. Also a productive rhythm of the week should be introduced such as quiz nights and live sports to ensure the pub remains the hub of the community. The refurbishment planned will consists of exterior signage and lighting to improve the pavement appeal and attract new customers. Internally, we plan to develop the catering kitchen, update the ladies and gents toilets and also decorate both the lounge and bar areas adding new fixtures and fittings to the pub. We would welcome the input and ideas from the new licensee as we want to provide a business which will then give you the tools needed to run a successful business.
The private accommodation is located on the first floor and consists of three bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and bathroom and is in reasonable order. The new licensee may wish to put their own stamp on the private quarters making it feel homely and to their taste.
