The Moonrakers is a large detached community pub situated in the sought-after suburb of Newbold which is a village just north of Chesterfield and has a population of around 8000 residents. The pub is based in a busy residential area with stunning views of the countryside with schools, playgrounds and local business’ and takeaways within close proximity.  Opposite the pub there is a bus stop which operates regularly through until 11pm offering services into Chesterfield.

Pub Layout

The front entrance leads into the entrance lobby where you can then access either the bar or lounge. Ladies and gents toilets are also located in the entrance lobby. The bar area is serviced from a central bar servery and has a combination of fixed seating and loose furniture. The bar area also houses a pool table and darts okke. The lounge is currently used as a function room and again has a mixture of fixed and loose furniture. From the lounge there is a set of patio doors that lead on to the beer garden located at the rear of the pub. The lounge is serviced by the same central bar servery that also caters for the bar. From the bar servery there is a catering kitchen but this is not fully compliant and would need some investment to become operational. The pub also benefits from a good sized car park capable of parking for up to a dozen vehicles.

The Moonrakers is a drinks led pub business, hosting a pool team which helps to boost mid-week sales along with entertainment which also runs across the weekends. The Moonrakers should be the hub of the community and to help with this, a basic food menu should be developed.  Admiral Taverns may look to invest in this pub with the right person and this will enable the new licensee to take advantage of the busy area in which the pub is situated and generate further income with an operational commercial kitchen.

Private Accommodation

The private accommodation consists of a downstairs lounge and kitchen which has separate access to the pub.  Upstairs, you will find four bedrooms, bathroom and a small office space.

Entertainment is key and so continuing the current pool and darts teams as well as introducing a new ‘rhythm of the week’ would offer exciting prospects to this fantastic community pub. The new licensee would bring fresh ideas along with a food offer with investment into the catering kitchen from Admiral with the right licensee.  Alongside this Admiral can provide relevant training and support from our experienced catering team.
