Run a Stonegate Pub - Swan West Green Crawley, West Sussex

About the Pub

The Swan is a traditional wet-led business located in West Green on the outskirts of Crawley. The pub has historically traded extremely well as an ale house and the ideal candidate would be keen to continue this and potentially introduce a regular food offer. The pub operates from a large horseshoe bar servery allowing customers to be served from either side. The site can easily be zoned into different trading areas so that customers visiting for different reasons could be entertained simultaneously. Live music is particularly popular at weekends and there is potential to develop food trade with a recently completed kitchen - this would complete the customer offer. To the rear of the pub is a pool room that backs on to the patio garden. The patio garden to the rear is popular for summer barbecues and a marquee provides shelter and room for around 12 picnic benches. A wooden sheltered area acts as the smoking solution.

Regional Manager's Thoughts

This traditional neighbourhood pub is popular with locals who visit for well-kept ales, a great drinks range and live sports. This is evidenced by the current publicans achieving the prestigious Cask Marque status. I am interested in speaking with experienced operators who have high retail standards and who would be able to successfully add a suitable food offer to drive trade further.
