Regional Manager's Thoughts

The publican will need to be a food led operator, with an experienced background in local, quality food. The offer will appeal to both locals and drive-to trade alike, and will bring a hub of the community feel to the pub, holding events, functions etc. The function room and garden will lend themselves to additional trade outside the normal trading of the pub, and the new operator will maximise these amenities to drive new trade into the pub. The publican will forge links with the local community and ensure that the pub becomes the centre of the village life.
