The Kingsway sits in the city of Stoke-on-Trent, in a prominent location adjacent to the Stoke town hall and Kings Hall. The site is a short walk away from Stoke train station with parking available at the Kingsway Carpark providing easy access in and out of the City.  Centrally located with a short walk to the shops, boutiques and local transport hubs. The Britannia Stadium (Stoke City football ground) is not too far either with home match days bringing extra footfall to the pub, which thrives amongst the fans and atmosphere.

Pub Layout

The Kingsway boasts a beautifully decorated internal trading space which is divided into three distinct trading areas allowing the operator to provide suitable seating depending on what customers are looking for, whether that be relaxing for drinks with friends or enjoying a meal in a more secluded area of the bar. The focal point of the pub is a horseshoe-shaped bar allowing ease of service.  The bar is very well appointed allowing for marketing of a wide range of both draught and top-shelf products. The restrooms are located upstairs as is the large function room which is ideal for hiring out for those special events and/or business meetings. There is a good-sized commercial kitchen (also upstairs) which is serviced by a dumb-waiter, which provides the tenant with the option to offer food. The pub has an outside drinking area at the front of the pub, providing relaxed drinking and allowing customers to watch the world go by.

The Kingsway is a great pub. The nature of the city location means customers are in the area all day and night, whether that be office workers from the Town Hall, customers visiting the King’s Hall, or Stoke City football fans who gravitate to this pub on match days.  This is a real chameleon of a pub and offers a licensee the opportunity to drive trade throughout the day with different customers frequenting at different times. The function room offers lots of potential for local businesses as a meeting room for business meetings, alongside events such as social events, intimate weddings and wakes.
