Regional Manager's Thoughts

The Bishop Blaize would suit an experienced pub operator who can integrate with the local community. A late-night offer with live entertainment, events and televised sports is pivotal is key to the success of this business. Extensive food experience is not necessary, however the ability to offer a simple food offer would be desirable.
