The Wellington is a fantastic community pub, situated in the the densely populated residential area of Leek in the county of Staffordshire, 10 miles North East of Stoke on Trent.

Admiral Taverns would look to invest in the pub with a long term licensee

Pub Layout

On entrance you are welcomed by a well-stocked bar servery which services the spacious main bar area and the snug room. The snug room currently houses the pool table and is used regularly by the pool teams and locals. The dart board is well positioned on the raised area. The pub is balanced with both loose and fix seating and is in keeping with the style of pub as well as carpeted and tiled flooring. To the rear is an enclosed paved yard which has ample seating. Although there is no car park there is on street parking however most customers live within walking distance

The Wellington trades as a wet-led community pub. It is well supported by the local community, with a strong sports focus with both pool and darts teams. There is a varied product range in way of draft lagers with an opportunity to improve the overall offer with the introduction of a gin bar and the drinks sales should be driven by a good value offer. Entertainment in the form of live music and quiz nights have also been popular here, and the new licensee should focus on developing a strong rhythm of the week.
