This has been one of my best performing pubs for the last 3 / 4 years and it consistently trades well above average. It is a model community local and we’re looking to maintain the business as is. Ideally we’re looking for experienced operators that will fit in with both the customers and the existing staff and will continue to promote and drive the business with the fantastic retail standards. The Lodge is arguably one of Admiral’s best local community pubs in the North West.
