Run a Stonegate Pub - Lion Teddington, Greater London

About the Pub

The Lion is a well presented, Victorian style pub which occupies a corner plot in a residential part of Teddington, London. Popular for its wide selection of cask ales and traditional food menu, the pub is at the heart of the local community. The pub currently operates from a one bar operation which has a good selection of lagers and cask ales which leads into an area of seating for both eating and relaxing. The Lion is well maintained and is in good order both internally and externally. A prospective new retailer may wish to develop and enhance on the traditional features. There is a well equipped trade kitchen located on site, capable of producing a simple pub food menu. Externally, to the rear of the pub there is an external patio area which can be enjoyed during the summer months and a function room for 50 people to drive additional revenue. The private accommodation is in good order and comprises of three bedrooms, a lounge and kitchen. Stonegate Pub Partners are now seeking a community minded publican with catering experience who can continue the lunchtime food trade whilst marketing the pub effectively to drive additional trade.

Regional Manager's Thoughts

The Lion is a fantastic pub located in a thriving and affluent suburb of the capital. The customer base is drawn from the local community as well as some passing trade; the quality Cask Ale on offer also brings a loyal following. The simple pub food offer brings in lunchtime custom, this is an area of the business which could be further exploited to maximise trade and revenue. I am now seeking a community minded publican who can continue a steady lunchtime food offering whilst providing excellent customer service.
