Regional Manager's Thoughts

Occupying a prominent main road position, the Volunteer also attracts good levels of passing trade, though there is potential to develop the food offer and introduce a more upmarket menu to increase revenue from this aspect of the business. This site represents an ideal opportunity for a couple or publican with good levels of marketing and catering skills.
