The Trumpet is a three storey semi-detached building located in a highly residential area of Ilkeston called Cotmanhay. Local shops and amenities are close by and the town centre is only a five minute drive – there is easy access to bus routes. With a population of circa 4,500 there is a large local target market.

Pub Layout

Upon entering the pub there is a central bar servicing all areas of the open plan trade area. To right of the pub there is seating for approximately 25 with access to the toilets and to the left is a pool table and darts area with access to a lovely external courtyard drinking area which is located to the rear of the pub. In good order and well kept, the pub has a welcoming feel and has a feel of exactly what it is – a wet led community pub. Although no pub car park, there is parking nearby.

The Trumpet is very much a locals pub for the local community and offers pool, darts, sports viewing and a skittle alley. Currently this is a wet led pub but has the potential for a basic handheld back bar food offer. With the low rateable value, Sky Sports is key to the retail offer.

Private Accommodation

This consist of three bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and bathroom which are all in reasonable order.

This pub is suitable for both experienced and first time operators in particular those that have a passion for ensuring that this pub continues to play a large role in the local community and have the vision to drive the sales further.

Our vision for the Trumpet is to be the local pub of choice in the community with an emphasis on pub activities and sports viewing together with introduction of a backbar food offer.
