Pub Layout

It features an unusual horseshoe style bar servicing both the bar and the lounge that are separated only by the three-quarters high gantry a feature in itself. There is a small kitchen area which could be used to serve light bites and a small menu. There is also a small function room/lounge area to the rear which features a log burning stove and is a peaceful retreat. A covered smoking area has been created at the rear of the pub; this leads to a small car park.

This pub brings the High Street to the community as it is a mixture of both; community-led through the week with locals interacting and enjoying the ambience but High Street at weekends with entertainment and circuit drinkers meeting and enjoying the offer. This pub offers unique flexibility to build local weekday trade along with weekend diversity. There is also the opportunity to create and drive a small pub food offer and the rooms add another dimension to this fantastic business.
