Take a Gander

Burringham, DN17 3NA

Please leave your details and our team will be in touch. * fields are required


The Take a Gander is an attractive destination dining pub, situated on the main through road in the village of Burringham, opposite the River Trent and approximately four miles from Scunthorpe. Burringham is a small village, however the pub pulls trade from all surrounding villages and towns as the pub has a good reputation for its food offer.

Pub Layout

The pub sits on a large plot at the edge of the village and benefits externally from having a good sized car park for approximately 20 cars, enclosed walled rear garden and courtyard with entrance from either the car park or the main dining room. Internally the site is split into various different types of rooms, small snug bar, open main bar area which houses the main bar servery and a large dining area seating up to 100 covers. There is a function room with its own independent bar and this is also used for day to day trade as an additional bar and games room housing a pool table along with an open fire. The ladies and gents toilets are located to the rear of the pub. To support the food offer the site has a well-equipped catering kitchen and dry prep room. This pub has a lot to offer in the way of ambience, with its exposed beams and brick walls, open fires and rustic furniture, embracing the true character this pub has to offer.

The Take a Gander is a quality pub with a strong community following with an abundance of loyal regulars, along with being a drive-to destination pub and function venue. The main income is driven through the food offer, which is available daily, along with a carvery proving very popular on a Sunday. In addition to the food, the Take a Gander also hosts an array of entertainment and community events throughout the year, however a more frequent offer, should be implemented. Admiral Taverns are looking for applicants who will demonstrate experience in running this type of venue, which has a good food offer, cask ales and is also the hub of the community.

This attractive site has further potential to develop the food offer and grow the wet trade. Standards are very good but the introduction of more community activity such as quiz nights, food theme nights and occasional entertainment could help improve the business.

Potential applicants would ideally have good catering experience and need the vision to maximise the offer at this attractive and versatile pub.
