Great Northern

Keighley, BD21 5EH

Please leave your details and our team will be in touch. * fields are required


The Great Northern is located on the main Halifax Road, two miles from Keighley Town Centre. The local Steam Railway Museum is directly opposite the pub with local amenities and shops also close by.  Keighley is a town and civil parish within the metropolitan borough of the City of Bradford in West Yorkshire and is situated eleven miles from Bradford City Centre. It has a population of 89,870, making it the third largest civil parish in England.

Pub Layout

The outlet trades from two separate rooms on the ground floor which are served from a central bar servery, this offers all round vision and ease of service to all areas of the pub and there is a small preparation area to facilitate a back bar food offer.  There is a pool and darts area to the left hand side with access to the ladies and gents toilets.  To the right is a lounge with a log burner that is popular with the locals on the winter nights.  The fixtures and fittings are in good condition and the pub currently caters for up to 30 covers. Outside there is a small car park for seven cars with a small beer garden and a smoking solution to the front of the pub.

The Great Northern trades as a traditional community local pub. To further increase turnover, there is an opportunity to enhance the back bar catering offer introducing snacks such as pies and paninis and also to develop the current cask ale offer.  The pub currently offers live entertainment such as weekly quiz nights, pool and darts teams throughout the week and karaoke at the weekend.  Admiral Taverns may look to invest in this pub with the right applicant and are looking for applicants who are familiar with Keighley and will identify in their business plan their ideas and visions for this community pub.

The Great Northern has a great community following which the next licensee will need to embrace and support. I am looking for an individual or couple to take this already popular community local, to the next level to make it the best pub in the area. The new licensee will need to have great standards, strong work ethic along with good organisational skills in order to continue and expand the rhythm of the week. There is an opportunity for a back bar food offer to be introduced, along with the exploration of cask ales.
