Regional Manager's Thoughts

There is potential to further develop the turnover and profitability of the business, which is situated within an outstanding part of the country. It is a multi-revenue pub with trade being divided between wet, food and accommodation sales, though the ingoing publican would require new ideas to maximise the establishment's overall potential. The pub has a reputation for its cask ale and has proven demand for both the food and letting offerings.
