This well-presented community mainstream pub benefits from a prime position on the main road into and out of Worcester and is perfectly placed to offer a good home-cooked menu to attract families as well as evening diners. Local drinkers provide a good following for the pub’s live TV sports offer.
Located on the main road through the village of Kempsey in Worcestershire, the Anchor Inn is a well-presented community mainstream pub with a popular all-round offer. It’s a two-room operation with the main bar area providing a pool table and screens for viewing live TV sports while the comfortable lounge/restaurant area is typically used for food service. The pub’s kitchen is a good size and can cater for 35 covers throughout. The food offer here would ideally be a home-cooked menu, to provide not only an option for family meals but also quick evening food. It should be supported by a strong range of drinks products, including cask ale. A good coffee offer would help to entice people in during the day. Outside, the pub has a large beer garden to the rear of the property, with a dedicated children’s play area. There’s also a smoking shelter, which has electric power to allow smokers to continue to enjoy the live TV sports coverage. The pub’s car park offers 20 spaces.
The private accommodation consists of four bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge.
The ideal operator at the Anchor would preferably have previous experience of running a community pub, as well as experience of delivering a food offer and running a catering kitchen. At this site, it will be important that you become the face of the pub, to help drive the community spirit.
