Run an Admiral Pub - The Bull, Burrough Green
The Bull is located in the pretty village of Burrough Green and is situated on the Village Green. This is five and a half miles from Newmarket. The village has circa 400 people and is the only pub within the area with many other surrounding villages too.
To the front is a garden with benches perfect for enjoying summer evenings and the site also boasts a large car park and a rear garden with a children’s play area as well as a petanque pitch. The exterior was decorated a couple of years ago and is in good condition.
Internally, the pub has two distinctive trade areas. As you walk into the premises, you enter the bar side of the business with a darts area, large open fire and a good section of real ales. The second area is set out for dining and is newly refurbished with space for approx. 40 covers. In addition, there is a fully fitted trade kitchen, and ground level cellar.
As a village pub, The Bull needs to place itself at the heart of the community. The site should have a strong calendar of events including quiz nights, live entertainment and fundraisers to make sure the locals always have a reason to come to the pub. The provision of a home cooked, locally sourced menu will also be crucial to the ongoing success of the site and ensure that it becomes the go-to destination site for not only Burrough Green but the surrounding villages too. With Newmarket races being in such close proximity tapping into this market will be essential to growing trade at the site.
The private accommodation consists of three bedrooms, one single and two doubles, a spacious lounge and bathroom.
Your investment: £9,000
Annual Rent: £16,000
The new operator must want to become an intrinsic part of village life and have the catering skills to develop a menu that will drive trade to the site. As ever excellent customer service skills and high standards will be essential alongside a warm and welcoming manner that makes each visitor welcome.
