Run a Stonegate Pub - Bridge Inn Chester Chester, Cheshire

About the Pub

The Bridge Inn is in fantastic condition after a recent refurbishment with new fixtures and fittings giving the site an upmarket modern look whilst remaining traditional in its feel. The open plan trading area has space for approximately 100 guests and has several nooks and crannies. One area that serves a game area and houses a pool table and dart board, TVs throughout show live sports which is currently a popular attraction for the pub, significantly the local community. The property also benefits from a well-dressed function room on the first floor which has its own bar and space for approximately 40 covers, ideal for a publican seeking extra trading potential. The new publican should look to fully utilise the trade kitchen as it is more than capable of producing a mid-market food offer. Further potential for increased revenue exists by providing live music or entertainment in order to attract customers from further afield. To the left of the pub is a beer garden which overlooks the Shropshire Union Canal and has several picnic benches providing seating for approximately 40 covers. With some attention, this area could be a truly pleasant setting to drink and dine alfresco. The pub's car park has space for three or four vehicles, but further roadside parking is available.

There is also an underutilised first floor function room that is ready to launch for local residents to hold celebrations.
