The Holywell is a well known, established, large ex managed house sitting in a prominent location on London Road which is the main trunk road out of Hinkley towards the M69. The pub is a 15 minute walk from Hinkley town centre and as such is very accessible from both town and the by car round the ring road. The surrounding area is densely populated with predominantly privately owned housing. There is only one other pub within ½ a mile.

Pub Layout

The Holywell sits on a large plot that has car parking for circa 45 vehicles with a security gate and CCTV. To the rear is a large garden with a children’s play area and a large paved patio area with garden bench seating for over 80 people.  On entering the main doors to the front of the pub customers will see the large bar servery to the left of the open plan but zoned main lounge area. There is a main big screen viewing area for sports TV & weekly live entertainment in the middle of the room. Surrounding are 4 seating areas  sectioned off subtly with balustrading and fixed soft furnished seating. The main room boasts 2 open fires with lovely stone fire surrounds which are popular in the winter. Off the main lounge through double doors ia a rear room that has a pool table in the raised area and Darts run on the lower level. Loose seating for 20 customers on the lower level and windows overlooking the garden. This room is also used as a function room with the pool table being moved to one end of the raised area and used as a buffet table.  The garden to the rear is an amazing sun trap, gated and enclosed to keep children safe. Rows of garden benches give seating for over 80 people year round. At the start of the garden patio closest to the pub we have a separate garden bar complete with its own chilled cellar and servery with 6 dispense points and room for a pizza oven and prep area. There is also bench seating at the front of the pub for those wanting to watch the world go by. Customer toilets are found off the main lounge and the cellar is below ground.

The pub currently trades to both local and destination drinkers due to its ideal location. The customer base is wide as people visit for different reasons. Sky sports viewing and teams are popular with the pub running a football team darts and 2 pool teams playing in local leagues. The pub is probably best known for its entertainment varying from the weekly quiz, to live music, karaoke’s and periodic bonkers bingo sessions.  The pub has a large kitchen to the rear but currently only serves snack food. Every Friday night different traveling food vans are booked in with customers being able to enjoy Polish, Greek and Italian to name but a few, which has proven to be very popular.
