Run a Stonegate Pub - Hop Inn Bitterne Park Southampton, Hampshire

About the Pub

The pub is a stand alone brick building on a corner plot highly visible from the main road as you drive through Bitterne Park. It is presented well from the outside and has a small car park for five cars but there is free car parking (non permit) so plenty of access to the pub.

The pub has two distinct bars; a lounge bar and seperate public bar, each accessed through their own entrance and then an enclosed garden with paly equipment and covered smoking shelter.

The pub is presented well, the lounge bar in a more traditional decor style with bench seating and is used for eating. The public bar has space for darts, pool, TVS and accesses the smoking area and garden.

The publicans have been in place for over 20 years and the pub has a reputation for being well run with no licensing issues.

Regional Manager's Thoughts

This is a fantastic opportunity for the right applicant to take on a pub which has been well run for over two decades and has a loyal following.

The pub is presented well with all the assets to allow a quality operator to offer something for everyone in the local community to drive footfall into the pub.

With two separate bars, the pub can offer events and footfall driving activities while regualr customers can still meet for a bite to eat and a catch up with their friends undisturbed.

We are looking for a publican to become part of the local community and offer a strong, well marketed rythm of the week to drive footfall into the pub.
