Run a Stonegate Pub - Duke Of York Barlaston Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire

About the Pub

The Duke of York in Barlaston is the archetypal village pub serving both the local community and those from further afield attracted by its traditional charm. It offers a great opportunity for someone to be ‘mine host’ and to provide a homely environment for the local community as well as maximising the potential of the pub to be a food destination pub. The pub has a traditional layout of a lounge and a public bar. Both are in good decorative order and have a homely, welcoming feel. The public bar houses a darts throw and the lounge can accommodate approximately 40 covers and leads into an adequately sized catering kitchen. Externally, there is a car park to the rear of the property with space for around 12 vehicles, a single garage, and sufficient space for outside drinking. The private accommodation is in good condition with three bedrooms, a lounge, fully fitted trade kitchen, bathroom, and office.
