About the Pub

The Griffin is a city centre bar that behaves like a local, right in the heart of the city with retail and commercial premises all around and in the heart of the main Wakefield drinking circuit. A long central bar servery with traditional decoration caters for the various areas throughout the pub. There is a mix of dark wooden furniture that provides seating for 120, giving plenty of space for those coming in for a drink and to watch live sports on any of the three large television screens. To the rear of the pub is a large stage with a dance floor for the weekend entertainment. A commercial kitchen is available, which could provide a good bar snack offer with some modernisation. The Griffin is well-laid out in general and decorated with up to 80 covers in a separate eating area. The private accommodation consists of three-bedrooms, a lounge and kitchen. Ideally placed for a city centre operator to maximise the trading levels throughout the day providing sports viewing and entertainment at weekends.

Regional Manager's Thoughts

The Griffin caters perfectly for the locals, workers and shoppers during the day and is an integral part of the Wakefield night circuit. The pub is well known for showing live sports and providing popular entertainment such as live music and karaoke. This wet-led value business needs an experienced publican to improve upon its already prominent position in the market, and with some investment, introduce a bar snack offer.

Surrounding Area
