The pub is a popular destination for the local community and has a good reputation for its sports offering so any new potential licensee must be prepared to subscribe to Sky Sports. The experience and qualities we consider desirable to run this popular pub include drive and enthusiasm and ideally someone who is passionate about the quality of products and service they offer to the local community. Another key skill is good organisation to ensure all marketing and merchandising material is kept up to date, especially when advertising sport. As the pub boarders the open countryside the site is very popular with walkers and dog owners so accepting customers and their pets is a key requirement.
