Run a Stonegate Pub - Antelope Inn Wareham Wareham, Dorset

About the Pub

The Antelope Inn is a quirky, yet cosy pub situated in Wareham with a range of popular amenities. The internal trade area is split in to three, with a designated games area and a pool table, as well as eight televisions situated throughout the pub for sports viewing. The décor is traditional with a modern touch, comprising of an exposed brick wall interior, laminate flooring and neon lights illuminating the bar. The pub provides a welcoming and charming place to relax with a casual drink and enjoy sports viewing with a trade kitchen available to develop a food offer. The six letting rooms are the main attraction for this pub, allowing the new publican scope for extra earning potential. Externally, there is a small courtyard area to the back of the pub with space for 20 covers. The circular picnic benches create the perfect space to enjoy an afternoon drink or alfresco dining. There is an exciting investment planned including a new signage scheme and a redecoration as part of the agreement.

Regional Manager's Thoughts

I require a strong wet-led publican with some food experience who can continue the lively trade at this well-known local sports pub. Currently, Friday night karaoke and music events are very popular and are considered the hub of the community. I would like someone to re-introduce a food menu and utilise the six letting rooms available to further profit potential.

Surrounding Area

The pub is situated just off the main high street in Wareham, drawing in trade from the residents nearby. There is a long stay car park and leisure centre nearby along with schools and local supermarkets allowing easy access to the pub. The river Frome is a local landmark with tourist trade passing in the warmer months.
