Pub Layout

The pub is situated on a busy crossroads with great curb appeal. The pub has three distinctive areas with the main bar oozing character with traditional seating, large windows, and a well-stocked bar. The small snug provides additional seating and at present is under utilised. The function room has its own bar, it’s spacious with a light and airy feel, this space could be maximized through events and weekly groups. Externally there is an enclosed paved space which is a fantastic addition on match days and in addition to this, it also has its own outside bar. The car park is of a good size and is accessed for coaches on match days.

The Villa Tavern is a fantastic pub with strong links to Aston Villa Football Club, with the pub coming alive on match days. It is predominantly drinks orientated with a vast range of lagers and cider however there is an opportunity for the new licensee to introduce a range of cask ale.  There is a small food prep area that is under utilised and at present only offers snacks so there is lots of scope to offer a small food offer to appeal to locals and the avid football fans on matchdays. Although there are no weekly events a new licensee should maximize the weekdays with quizzes and entertainment.

The Villa Tavern has a great and loyal following from the Aston Villa football fans, but there is clear potential to attract more of the local community in the surrounding houses. By providing for their needs, the Villa Tavern could become a fantastic entertainment bar with weekly events such as open mic nights, jam nights, quiz nights, televised sport and live music. Regular promotions on core brands could provide a value offer at key times to entice customers in as well as promoting exciting craft brands and continental beers to offer a point of difference. The licensee should also make sure they continue to provide a warm welcome to their existing customer base and should be willing and able to provide an offer that caters for both Football fans and locals. The licensee will need to be able to provide a friendly face behind the bar, in a busy and vibrant pub. They’ll need bags of energy and should also be able to identify opportunities to drive trade through events and activities and to be able to promote these well on social media platforms.
