Run a Stonegate Pub - Victoria Walshaw Bury, Greater Manchester

About the Pub

The Victoria Hotel is located in Walshaw, a small village between Bury and Tottington. It is considered a well-established multi-faceted business with an excellent reputation as a quality place to dine or stay in one of the four ensuite bedrooms. Everything radiates from a central bar which forms the 'hub' of the interior layout. Facing onto an open-plan lounge, there is a raised decking area specifically designated for dining and provides cover for approximately 48 covers. There are two coal fires at the end of each room which bring character and a warm atmosphere to the pub, particularly in the winter months. Adjacent to the bar are two small snug areas which can provide extra dining space if required, with overall potential for up to 90 covers. A unique selling point for the pub comes in the form of four adequate, but comfortable ensuite letting rooms on the first floor of the property, ideal for a publican who wishes to take on letting potential. A patio beer garden welcomes guests at the front of the pub, with a handful of picnic benches to accommodate approximately 24 covers.

Regional Manager's Thoughts

Established as a great value for money venture within the local community, the Victoria is an amazing business. The facilities this business has to continue to grow include wet trade, food trade, takeaway trade, letting rooms and machine income. Future publicans would do best by targeting the development of the food menu to cater for custom from passing trade and to build on the use of the B&B facilities on site through an extensive marketing plan. The ideal publican will have a background in catering and letting rooms, with panache for marketing sprinkled in to drum up business and take this pub to the next level.
