Regional Manager's Thoughts

This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced retailer, ideally from a community led background. The pub serves drinkers drawn largely from the local area as well as customers who go to the pub specifically to enjoy the big screen showing major sporting events and the pool and darts facilities. There is potential to develop a good traditional food offer to attract additional trade to the pub.
