Looking to run a pub?
The Bowling Green Tavern is a community mainstream pub that sits in a prominent position in the centre of a large residential area of the seaside town of Deal in Kent. Its proximity to the local hospital provides a great opportunity to attract hospital staff to the pub. The trading space is versatile and the pub’s large beer garden is a real asset in summer months.
We’re planning a full refurbishment here, to include internal redecoration of the whole trading area, complete with new carpets and fixtures and fittings throughout. The exterior will also be repainted and new signage added across all facias.
The pub trades across three large rooms: a function room/dining room, conservatory and the main bar. Each of the rooms has its own feel and identity, so they’re ideally suited for different occasions or types of customers using the pub. However, they can also be opened up to create one large space. The kitchen can cater for up to 45 covers throughout and free WiFi is available. Outside, the pub offers a large beer garden and car park, making it an ideal choice for families in the summer. A smoking solution is also provided.
The domestic accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
The local area
Deal is a seaside town in Kent, which has a population of about 30,000. In the summer, it attracts a large number of tourists. Many local residents commute to nearby Canterbury for employment. The pub sits a few blocks away from the seafront, in the centre of a large area of residential housing and close to the hospital.
This is ideal for someone with local knowledge and experience of running a food operation. The ability to put on entertainment would provide an additional revenue stream.
