Regional Manager's Thoughts

The pub is currently trading as a great community driven pub. It offers entertainment, and some food on a limited basis throughout the week which is very popular for Sunday lunches; there is a great opportunity to develop the food further. The Wilbraham Arms currently opens in the afternoon during the week. There is a great opportunity to open earlier to develop lunchtime trade for customers looking for a lighter option, or simply comfortable surroundings in which to catch up over a speciality coffee. The right publican could develop the Wilbraham Arms further by enhancing this day time offer. The property is in excellent condition and is being well ran by the excellent publicans who are unfortunately leaving the pub to be nearer family.
