The Vine is a large, well-appointed, community pub located in the highly sought after Cheshire village of Shavington. The pub is in a reasonably affluent area, well situated amongst chimney pots and shares a car park with a busy Co-Op store. The village is located centrally just under 4 miles from Nantwich and south of Crewe, within 10 minutes of Junction 16 of the M6 within easy reach of Manchester and Stoke-On-Trent.

Pub Layout

The main entrance to the pub is opposite the Co-Op and is via a small patio area which accommodates 4 benches. Once into the foyer of the pub customers can chose from a variety of different spaces depending on their requirements. To the immediate left is a small snug area, with a real fire. To the right is another snug area and another separate room that would lend itself well as a specific zone for dining. Towards the left rear of the pub is the bar and a more sports focused area with darts board, gaming machines and pull down projector screen. There is a mixture of fixed & loose seating throughout and various floor coverings, which help define the different zones. There is a large, enclosed beer garden to the rear, which comes into its own in Summer. There are 3 freestanding covered bench pods, which prove very popular on sunny days.

The pub does have a small catering kitchen; however, this would require some work to be at a standard required to provide a food offer.


The Vine is a community pub which offers something for everyone, from sports teams, cask ale fans to local community groups, and everything in between. It should have a premium drinks range that caters for the various occasions on which these customers use the pub. The retail offer should be consistent, with customer service and standards always the number one priority. A varied rhythm of the week needs to be planned in to ensure there is always a reason to visit and this needs to be marketed in professional way. The pub would benefit from a small and simple food offer. Although not vital to the overall offer it would make a good income stream. To establish a food offering, this would require a higher level of investment from the ingoing licensee.
