Run a Stonegate Pub - Hammer & Pincers Wyberton Boston, Lincolnshire

About the Pub

The Hammer & Pincers is a community pub that is enjoyed by a local customer base who visit the pub for the strong drinks offer, live sport and pub games. The pub currently operates from two trading areas; the main bar area and the lounge, both of which have their own bar servery. There is a conservatory adjacent to the lounge which is dedicated to dining including a carvery offer on Sundays for Boston residents and visitors to the many shopping centres and the supermarket next door. The bar area offers seating for 25 covers with plenty of space for vertical drinking, a pool table, darts board and Sky and BT sport. The lounge provides 20 covers in a more relaxed setting and the conservatory has 38 covers. Both the bar and lounge have open fires providing a home from home, cosy atmosphere. Externally, the pub has two drinking areas with picnic bench seating, a popular destination in the warmer months. The private accommodation has two double bedrooms, a good-sized lounge, kitchen diner, office and large bathroom. The outgoing publicans have been in situ for 15 years and have built a very strong and stable business that a new operator can build on and keep the business at the heart of the community.

Regional Manager's Thoughts

A great opportunity to take on a well-established community food business with potential to grow both wet and dry sales. The recent Mother's Day week recorded sales in excess of £17,000 and this demonstrates the popularity of the pub and the quality of the existing publicans who are relocating. The current operation is a great example of what is possible when all areas of the business are traded well including breakfast, sport, a carvery offer and outdoor trading. There is further opportunity to release potential by refreshing these elements and exploring menu development and building on the current loyal drink trade including cask ales.
