“The site is situated on a busy street in the centre of town, meaning there is plenty of footfall at all times of day and plenty of scope to improve volume and food sales.

“The pub was refurbished within the last two years and is a great venue for the locals to enjoy. Great standards, quality products and a competitive offer will be key to stand out from the crowd.
