Regional Manager's Thoughts

The current customer base comprises of mature males during the day who enjoy the cask ales on offer. In the evenings and at weekends, the clientele is mixed with a wider range of ages. This business would suit an enthusiastic first-time publican who will need to continue the value for money food and drinks offer, whilst offering a broad range of entertainment throughout the week.
