Run a Stonegate Pub - Golden Ball Inn Telford Telford, Shropshire

About the Pub

The Golden Ball is a gem of a traditional English Inn, it is the oldest Pub in Ironbridge dating back to 1728 when the Pub brewed its own Beers. The old Fermenting Vessel and Mash Tun are now features in the restaurant. The pub is located on the valley side of the Ironbridge Gorge and the River Severn can be glimpsed from the car park. It comprises a rustic bar area and a restaurant split into two sections, with a total of approximately 50 covers. There is a fitted kitchen, attractive beer garden and courtyard, plus a car park. The real bonus of this pub is the four en-suite letting bedrooms that will generate additional custom and revenue.

Regional Manager's Thoughts

The Golden Ball represents an excellent opportunity to develop a high quality wet and dry retail offer in the heart of the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge. I am seeking a true all-rounder, with strong catering skills to develop a quality food offer but also has a passion for real ales. You must have an eye for detail whilst being a natural host as the regulars expect their Publican to be involved in the community. It will be essential to fully utilise social media to market the letting rooms and new menus to the widest possible audience.

Surrounding Area

The Golden Ball is located in Ironbridge, which takes its name from the World’s first Ironbridge built by Thomas Telford in 1779 and attracts thousands of tourists throughout the year. There are ten Museums in the town including the award winning Blist Hill Museum and other activities include walking and cycling on the nearby Wenlock Edge. The town has a population of 2500 but also draws in drinkers from many parts of Telford.
