Run a Stonegate Pub - Jolly Farmer Warsash Southampton, Hampshire

About the Pub

The Jolly Farmer is a substantial standalone pub on a side road in the affluent village of Warsash heading towards a large holiday park. The pub has been on a lease for many years and needs some refurbishment to maximise its' potential but has traded well in the past and has a loyal following of regular local customers. Internally, the pub is split into two main areas, an adequately sized public bar with space for drinkers and then a large seating area with 70 covers suitable for diners. The pub has four ensuite letting bedrooms which are all in need of some refurbishment to maximise the room rate as they have the scope to be high end boutique style rooms. The well kitted trade kitchen is on the ground floor and capable of providing a substantial level of food. The external trading area is accessed through the restaurant side of the business and comprises a large patio laid out with external furniture and parasols. This leads onto a further grassed area again laid out for external drinking and dining. This area would suit an external structure to make it weatherproof all year round. There is also a car park on both sides of the pub for up to 15 vehicles.
