The Waterloo is a one bar corner pub site located in a residential street behind the seafront at Weymouth. The pub is at the east end of the town surrounded by guest houses and private housing.

With beautiful golden sands and a vibrant seafront and pretty harbourside, Weymouth attracts many visitors.

Pub Layout

The Waterloo is a single bar pub with seating for approx. 30 covers. The bar can be seen on entry and leads through to the beer cellar which is on the same floor. Through the hallway you have access up to the domestic quarters and the ladies and gents toilets. Further down the hallway, there is a large store room which could be developed to create a small catering preparation area so that a simple food offer can be introduced. This leads through to the fantastic beer garden at the rear of the property. This area seats approx. another 50 covers laid to three distinctive areas. There is no carpark but plenty of local off road parking.

The pub trades with a traditional wet offering including a vast range of draught products, wines and spirits and also has two local two cask ales available. Entertainment is predominantly by way of occasional live music along with Friday night karaoke and also features bingo and quiz nights which are all well supported by the locals. A dart board and juke box are also frequently used by the customers and so there is always plenty of all round entertainment and sports on offer.

The pub underwent extensive refurbishment throughout in 2021 and presents extremely well.

The Waterloo lends itself to being a starter pub as well as having the scope for an already experienced licensee. I am looking for someone who has the ability and flair to run a traditional, well-presented pub in the heart of the community. The right licensee will be able to juggle the demands of the locals at the same time as maximising on the tourism opportunity and really pushing the pub to its potential.

The right retail offer will consist of great lagers, ales, wines and spirits with promotions, events and sports teams.
