The Fox and Hounds is located prominently on the main Crawcrook High Street with both housing and retail in the immediate catchment area. The area is mainly populated by hard working families with new estates being developed to make the area a good commuter village for the main industrial centres of Newcastle and Washington. There is therefore a good age range of customers for the pub to tap into with families and elderly being the most prominent. If you were to pick a location for a great community local you would choose the exact position of this business. Admiral have recognised the quality of the ongoing opportunity with our existing licensee and have planned a refurbishment to the full trading area. However, owing to promotion in his main employment the scheme will now transfer to the new licensee.
The pub is a one room unit affair. The main bar features on walking through the main front door with the pool and darts facilities on the right-hand side. The left-hand side of the pub is a more relaxed area during the day and then on weekends the pub is livelier with this area being a dance floor and a higher energy drinking space. Externally there are two drinking areas. A large beer garden as well as a decked area to the front of the pub are well used in the summer months.
The Fox and Hounds is driven totally by its wet trade and is popular with a number of consumers. Retired and shift workers by day, sports viewers for the big matches, pool and darts teams on match nights. Live music and DJ’s attract customers at the weekends who are usually looking for a more lively night out. The Fox and Hounds really is a pub for all occasions.
The private accommodation is in good order and consists of three bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and a living room.
