This high street value pub is a wet-only proposition and is ideally positioned to take advantage of week-round passing footfall. With a strong sports and entertainment offer, it has the potential to become the busiest pub in town. Introducing cask ales and a bar snack menu will help to boost sales.
The Albion is well laid out, with two separate trading rooms. It thrives on trade from pub teams (darts, dominoes and football) and also offers regular entertainment in the shape of live music, karaoke and discos. Charity events, poker, bingo and quiz nights could easily be added to the mix to attract locals and day visitors to the pub.
The domestic accommodation consists of two bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
The Albion benefits from a prime location on Broseley high street, close to local shops while also being surrounded by residential housing. Broseley was once a mining/iron industry town, but nowadays locals tend to seek employment a little further afield. With a population of just under 5,000, the town lies about 6 miles from Telford and 2 miles from Ironbridge, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
This pub would possibly suit a first-time operator who knows the local area and people. Its relatively small size means fixed overheads are lower than average. Can you envisage turning this pub into the busiest in town, using a varied yet consistent retail and entertainment offer to drive sales?
