The Old Sal is a great opportunity, it is a large detached pub located next the the local shop, in the centre of a very large demographic of housing and is well supported by the local community. It is just a few miles from the bustling city centre of Stoke on Trent and benefits from great transport links.

Pub Layout

The Old Sal is a welcoming and well-designed pub. The combination of open-plan layout with carefully arranged seating creates a cosy atmosphere for all, the well-stocked bar servery is likely a focal point and provides a wide range of drink options. The eclectic mix of both tiles and carpeted areas creates a balance of welcoming spaces, whether customers want to watch sports on the televisions or have a casual catch-up. There is both Ladies and Gents toilets and a disabled toilet facility in the corridor supporting both lounge bar and function room. There is a rear beer garden also between main pub and rear car park.  The pub has a large car park to the rear off a rear beer garden area.


We believe in fostering a sense of community in all our Proper Pubs. To achieve this, the pub will need to embrace diversity and consistently deliver top-notch retail standards and a varied rhythm of the week.

The additional function room is a valuable asset that can serve as a versatile space for various events. Hosting community events and children’s parties not only provides a service to the local area but also helps solidify your pub’s position as a community hub.
