The Boot Inn has long operated as a traditional local, offering sports viewing, pub games and teams, plus a menu of tempting pub classics. Recently, there’s been a significant push on live entertainment and recorded music at weekends. Now, an improved food offer to match the shift from community value to mainstream could really consolidate the Boot’s place in the social life of this part of Sutton Coldfield. Families and couples will take advantage of food specials, and trade will also be driven by community activity and sports at this vibrant, high-profile and potentially hugely lucrative pub.
The Boot is a substantial pub with a 60-space car park to the front – perfect for attracting drive-to dining trade. It has an open plan bar area, offering free WiFi, dedicated dining space and a sports zone with Sky Sports coverage. The catering kitchen can service up to 75 covers, and the pub also boasts Cask Marque certification. Outside, the pub offers a sizeable beer garden to the rear, complete with children’s play equipment. There’s a smoking solution here too. The pub has recently benefited from a full-scale investment, which included external decoration, new signage and brand new outside seating.
The domestic accommodation consists of four bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
The Boot is located on a busy road into Sutton Coldfield, surrounded by highly desirable properties. This is a very affluent part of Birmingham, with a town centre that offers plenty of boutiques, cafes and independent shops. Transport links are excellent, there are good schools and a huge, sprawling park, plus plenty of golf courses. The local hospital is close by and should provide a steady stream of customers. A lot of the Boot’s trade will be walk-to, particularly at lunchtime, when retirees, parents and hospital staff will pop in for a light meal or sandwich. In the evening, trade will come from further afield, especially on live music nights. Food and socialising dominate weekend trade, with the all-important Sunday lunch and live sport keeping the Boot top of the list for residents of this leafy suburb.
We’re looking for an inspiring team leader with strong business acumen. You’ll need a passion for retail, a desire to work at the heart of the community and the ability to set and maintain the highest of standards.
