The Masons Arms is a detached pub situated on the busy road through Pontymister, a small village on the outskirts of Newport, South Wales. It benefits from being surrounded by numerous densely populated housing estates yet just minutes from the main roads connecting to Newport and the train station connecting to the valley and Newport City. Admiral Taverns would like to invest in this pub externally (subject to board approval)
The main bar is accessed through the front door with the bar in a prominent position straight in front of you. To the right is a small lounge style area with a mixture of fixed and loose seating, this area is utilised by the locals. To the right of the bar is another area which houses the pool table and television, with the pool table being used by the pool team hosting home and away matches. To the rear of the pub is a more relaxed lounge area with fixed seating and a log fire. The commercial kitchen is situated on the first floor. The car park is accessed from the side of the pub and has space for ten cars. The pub benefits from two beer gardens one immediately accessed via the rear of the pub which has views over the neighbouring towns and the second being a paved area reached via the car park.
The Masons Arms is a drinks focused community local pub with a huge opportunity to upgrade the current retail offer by a strong rhythm of the week and televised sports. The commercial kitchen is not currently being used but in the past has been a welcomed addition with a bar snack menu. The new licensee should look to relaunch a value food offering bringing in families from the community.
The private accommodation is situated on the first floor , with two double bedrooms, bathroom and sitting room.
