Pub Layout

The pub has an open plan layout but two defined areas allowing an operator to differentiate the trade in the pub. To the left is a comfortable lounge area benefiting from an open fire & to the right is the taproom/sports area with a central bar servery to serve both. Towards the rear of the pub is an unused room & food preparation area both of which are a development opportunity. Externally there is a large car park and two beer gardens at the rear of the property.


The pub is currently trading as a drink orientated venue with televised sport and some entertainment, however there’s a great opportunity to further develop the business by adding a back bar food offer. There is an excellent range of keg beers, lagers & ciders and an established cask ale following with further opportunity to extend the range & develop a premium spirit offer.
