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 has recently benefitted from a contemporary and sympathetic internal and external redecoration.

Pub Layout

The Foresters comprises of a one-room bar with a small drinking/seated 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. At the front of the building there are benches for outside drinking and to the rear of the property, there is a small courtyard area.

The Foresters has recently benefitted from a contemporary and sympathetic internal and external redecoration. 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. 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.

Private Accommodation

The private accommodation consists of three bedrooms, living room, bathroom and toilet as well as a kitchen area.

The Foresters benefits from a good level of sales and support from its current customers and attracts new customers and families from its recent refurbishment. 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 within the immediate area.  The pub needs a wide range of drinks, including a good wines and cask ale, and 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 the right licensee could incorporate a small back bar food offer to introduce some simple foods such as pies, pasties and maybe a pizza oven.
