Pub Layout

The main entrance to the pub is off the car park, through central double doors. Once in the pub there are a number of clearly defined zones that welcome a variety of clientele. To the left-hand side is a popular snug area which is enjoyed by small groups and couples catching up during the day over a coffee and a light bite or after work with a tipple. Just past this is an area designed for dining for about 20 cover, with a mixture of high- and low-level seating. The bar is central and U shaped, allowing for visibility of all daytime trading areas. At the rear of the pub is the sports area which house both a pool table and darts board, both of which are very popular with the local teatime trade.  To the right-hand side of the entrance there is an elevated open space which can cater for approx. 50 covers this can be used during busy dining times such as Sunday lunch or works well for functions. Off the function room is a sunroom which can also be used to host smaller functions. The catering kitchen is a substantial size and is well equipped.  Externally the pub has a well-presented beer garden. It’s known in the area as a sun trap and gets very busy on sunny days. There is also a children’s play area. The pub has a large car park which is shares with the retail unit.

The pub is a community pub which offers something for everyone, from sports teams to cask ale fans to families enjoying the beer garden, and everything in between. The pub should have a simple menu with a strong focus on home cooked meals, using local suppliers where possible to deliver the sustainability and provenance that diners now expect. It should trade on a 80/20 wet/dry split. It should also have a premium drinks range that caters for the various occasions on which customers use the pub.  The retail offer should be consistent, with customer service and standards always the number one priority. A strong rhythm of the week needs to be introduced to ensure there is always a reason to visit and this needs to be marketed in professional way.
