Pub Layout

The Foresters Tavern is a large detached building with ample parking to the front and a large carpark to the rear. It has the added benefit of a raised, covered patio area with space for a number of benches to the front of the pub and a grassed area to the side. Upon entering the pub from the front entrance you enter the foyer which is where both ladies and gents toilets are located.  To the left you will enter the large lounge area which has a mixture of fixed and loose seating consisting of high and low level seating. There is also the added benefit of a raised area which can be utilised for live entertainment. To the left of the lounge you will find the Darts throw and games machine. The lounge is serviced by a large bar servery with availability to add a good Cask offer.  To the right you have the bar area that has a serving hatch from the main lounge bar. This room as in the past had its own bar servery that could potentially be reinstated if needed with a proposed investment. The bar area is home to a pool table, a couple of Darts throws and the patio door that leads onto the lawned area, that, with development will be a great external drinking area.

The Foresters is a well established community local , the trade is based around pub teams through the week and entertainment at weekends. Sky sports has been successful in the past and there is scope to bring back to drive more footfall. The custom is local residents and regulars who will frequent other pubs in the area at weekends but use the pub as their main base.  There is a small kitchen well situated behind the bar servery, this should be utilised to implement a small food offer to run alongside a strong drinks offer, the external areas need to be utilised more to drive additional income through the warmer months.
