The Foresters Arms is a well-positioned corner pub in the area of Barnards Green, Great Malvern. Sat in the centre of a highly sought after area with high ABC1 demographics, this pub offers the right operator a fantastic opportunity to develop this site and create a quality local. It is the only pub in the immediate area of Barnards Green which sits on the edge of Great Malvern, at the foot of the Malvern Hills. It currently trades predominantly focusing on drinks with a heavy emphasis on pub sports, however, we feel that the Foresters has more to offer the community.
The Foresters comprises of a one-room bar with a small drinking/dining area off the main bar area. There is space for approximately 30 covers, but with some additional seating this could be increased to 40 and still remain comfortable. There is also a small games room although it’s actually too small for a pool table and is currently run down and barely used. The ladies toilets are very small and we are planning to extend them. At the front of the building there are benches for outside drinking and this area needs a little bit of a make-over to make it more appealing. To the rear of the pub there is a small courtyard which needs some love and attention.
The pub currently trades as a locals’ pub, offering darts, crib and pool. There is no reason why this pub couldn’t continue to operate in its current form, but a fresh approach to this pub could offer further income to the potential licensee. Admiral are prepared to invest in the pub to develop it, and allow it to appeal to a broader set of customers. The Foresters needs to be a comfortable inviting pub/bar, for the whole community attracting men and women alike and keeping in with the area of Great Malvern.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms, living room, bathroom and toilet and kitchen area.

The Foresters benefits from a good level of sales and support from its current customers and we hope that with a sympathetic refurbishment, we can attract new customers and families. This is a super little pub destined for the next stage of its life and we want a licensee with the passion and energy to drive this to the next level. To help re-position and market the Foresters it needs to have a strong on-line presence with great social media interaction with the immediate area. Admiral, with the right licensee, will invest in the pub, including an external decoration and signage scheme. The pub needs a wide range of drinks, including a good wines and cask ale, an even a bottled craft ale range to really stand it apart from the competition. Although the pub doesn’t currently have a food offer, we strongly believe we can incorporate a small catering preparation area where a simple but appealing range of foods could be prepared including deli boards, pizza or sandwiches and salads.
