Run a Stonegate Pub - Bell Haughton Stafford, Staffordshire

About the Pub

Situated on the western edge of Haughton, a pleasant rural village southwest of Stafford, the property is on the Newport Road and stands out like a beacon that drivers cannot fail to miss. The Bell is housed in a detached converted farmhouse, providing great food and excellent cask ales and is a well-presented pub catering for the more mature market. The wooden panelled central bar serves a host of cask ales and international beer brands into both the locals' area and the separate dining room, which has space for up to 60 covers. The pub benefits from an excellent trade kitchen, which is well-equipped and has plenty of storage to produce a varied menu. The décor is traditional, with brick fireplaces, exposed beams and brickwork, and a mixture of fixed and loose seating. The pub also boasts a landscaped beer garden with 10 tables for outdoor drinking and al fresco dining. The smoking shelter has easy access from both the bar and lounge including a disabled ramp from the restaurant to the garden and car park.

Regional Manager's Thoughts

The Bell is a destination food-led pub business with a great reputation for good food and well-kept ales and as such, attracts both residents in the local area and guests from further afield. The well-equipped kitchen enables a quality food operation and provides enough storage for the covers on offer. I am looking for an experienced food-led operator with the desire to succeed and drive the business forward.
