The White Lion is a detached pub prominently positioned on a corner plot, located on the busy A34 linking both Cannock and Stafford. It benefits from a road side location which should be used to attract new clientele through a curb side appeal as well as encouraging repeat custom from the densely populated surrounding housing estates. Admiral Taverns are looking to invest in the full external redecoration with a long term licensee.
On entering through the main front door, you are welcomed into an open plan trading area with the bar servery centrally located. To the right of the bar is a pool area and to the left is a darts oche and large screen TV. To the rear of the pub is a small snug that could be used as a small meeting area or dining area. The pub can facilitate up to 45 covers. The ladies and gents toilets are well presented and are located to the rear of the pub behind the bar servery. There is also a food prep area located behind the bar allowing the pub to offer bar snacks. Externally there is a fantastic patio area that has recently been renovated to a high standard with benches and a smoking solution.
The White Lion is a community pub which is primarily drinks led with a strong focus on sports. Mid week trade is driven through sports teams such as pool and darts although there is an opportunity to grow the mid week entertainment programme through a rhythm of the week and promotional activities . Weekend entertainment is popular with solo artists and karaoke. Although there is no catering kitchen there is a food preparation area that will enable a new licensee to offer a basic snack menu.
The private accommodation is located on the first floor and consists of three bedrooms, office, lounge, kitchen and bathroom all of which are well presented and in good order
