Pub Overview

Fantastic Refurbishment Planned!

A quality refurbishment will transform the Ring O Bells into the best pub in the village. Internally, the pub will be redecorated throughout. We'll be adding new furniture, lighting and bric a brac that provides a touch of premium to this village local. We're also installing two new fireplaces with surrounds and stone hearths and improving the darts area with new equipment. Minor works will be done to the toilets to bring them in line with the pubs new appearance.

Externally, the refurbishment will include the addition of an all-new signage and decorations to improve the pubs kerb appeal. Works will be done to the rear of the premises to create a beer garden equipped with festoon lighting and picnic benches. There's a further opportunity for an entrepreneurial operator to conduct works on the disused bowling green to the rear.

Thriving Village Location

Weaverham is a thriving community located a few miles from Warrington, surrounded by lovely countryside. The pub itself is located just on the main road through Weaverham, with nearby residential housing and small businesses. There are 4,780 adults within a 20 minute walking distance, with three other pubs and a cricket club for competition. The refurbishment will ensure that the Ring O Bells is the go-to pub for couples, families and groups of friends.

Serious Potential

Once refurbished, the Ring O Bells will operate as a quality premium local with live sports, entertainment and a decent value food offer. The quality of the refurbishment and introduction of the beer garden will ensure it stands head and shoulders above the competition. The pub has 120 covers, 70 internally and 50 externally. We're looking for an operator who can get to the very heart of the community and be the face of the pub. You'll need great customer service skills to match the quality of the food and drinks your customers expect. Someone who understands the importance of the community to the success of the pub and will engage in community activities and charities.

Post-refurbishment, the Ring O Bells will appeal to a broad spectrum of customers, including:
  • Groups of friends, couples and families as well as individual customers
  • Sports fans looking to watch their team or enjoy a game of darts
  • Community groups looking to utilise the pub

These customers will enjoy a fantastic offer driven by a quality operator, including:
  • Some premiumisation on the bar, including Birra Moretti for lager lovers and Beavertown Neck
  • Oil for craft drinkers
  • A home-cooked, traditional pub food menu. Affordable for mid-week occasions
  • A simple coffee offer
  • Entertainment as part of the rhythm of the week, such as a weekly quiz, live music and live sport
