Regional Manager's Thoughts

The Witton Inn is fresh to the market due to the long lease holders retiring, it is in good condition after being cared for and invested in by the outgoing publican. The pub is ready for a new publican to inject new life and take this site to the next level. The Witton is popular for live sport and quiz nights and would benefit from a refreshed calendar of events and entertainment to entice new and old customers.
