Regional Manager's Thoughts

The pub’s business has mainly been derived from wet-led sales, with the pub appealing to drinkers, gamers and pub teams alike. The Locomotive is very much a local’s pub which sits at the centre of the community and would ideally suit a publican who is locally known. Whilst the pub has not offered any food in the past, a good home-cooked menu would present additional opportunities.
