Pub Layout

Upon entrance from the main street you can turn left to the main bar and right to the lounge offering locals a choice of atmospheres to enjoy. The main bar area is a mixture of low level loose seating with TV’s adorning the walls showing live sports, a darts board and a small stage area for live music. The central bar to the left of the door goes between both bars via an open doorway and is stocked with premium products. Through to the back of the main bar there are ladies and gents toilets and a snug room complete with pool table for team sports and friendly competition. The lounge area is cosy and welcoming with a mixture of loose low level seating and sofas complete with soft furnishing ad carpeted throughout.

The Station Inn has a prime opportunity to capitalize on passing traffic while maintaining a strong appeal to the local community. Admiral Taverns are looking for a licensee who possess strong local knowledge and a genuine passion for community pubs. Understanding the needs and preferences of the local community is crucial to this site and by introducing a straightforward sandwich-type lunch menu and basic coffee options and offering value deals across drinks and food categories is essential in attracting and retaining customers, especially in an area where value is key. Also recognizing the importance of a vibrant weekend offering, the licensee should curate a diverse calendar of events to keep locals engaged and excited. This will be encouraged by a strong marketing plan, utilizing social media to reach a wide audience. All the above is key in keeping The Station Inn as the thriving community hub it is renowned for.
