Pub Layout

The outlet trades from an open plan trading area. On entering, you are faced with the central bar servery and a raised seating area to the left. To the right of the pub is the bar area with seating for up to 50 people and a pool table and darts area at the back. The ladies and gents toilets are located to the rear of the pub with the partially equipped catering kitchen located behind the bar. The pub benefits from a 15 space car park to the rear of the building. Also, to the rear of the pub is a quaint courtyard with a decked area and artificial grass to create an easy to maintain mini beer garden.

A recent investment has seen a major external decked area created to the side of the pub to enhance summer trading.

The Midland Hotel is a town centre pub that is driven mainly by weekend and daytime trade however there is scope to develop the pub further by offering entertainment such as quiz nights and poker nights and also by introducing and supporting pool and darts teams. Friday and Saturday nights are already popular with karaoke and DJs. Although food is not being served, there are facilities available in order to grow a value for money snack offer during the day to cater for the shoppers, office workers and families.
