The Railway is a bustling community pub situated in the densely populated area of Warwick. The area has recently undergone huge development with a vast number of new builds bringing a younger demographic crowd to the area. Warwick is an affluent market town in the county of Warwickshire lying south of Coventry and just west of Leamington Spa. The town has excellent transport links to the A46 and M40 within five miles drive connecting Birmingham to London. The Pub is located just a couple of minutes’ walk from Warwick train station.

Pub Layout

The pub is situated on the busy road through to the town centre, on entering from the street you are welcomed by the prominent bar servery which is well stocked with both cask and keg. The pub is traditional in décor with a mix of both loose and fixed seating throughout. There is a currently a darts board in the bar area where there is space for vertical drinking to watch the TV’s. To the rear of the pub is a small, enclosed courtyard which with a small investment could be a real gem and allow drinkers to enjoy all year round.

Trading Style:

The pub currently trades as a mid-market community pub. The new tenant would want to focus on reinventing the current offer and immersing themself in the local community. The offer needs to be more premium with good cask ales lines, premium drinks branding and a good selection of spirits. Entertainment such as community quizzes and open mic nights would be welcome. Satellite Tv would be of benefit and would draw it daytime drinkers especially at the weekends.  Although there is no commercial kitchen with support from Admiral Taverns catering executive there could easily be a back bar food offer introduced adding another income stream to the business.
