Looking for a Pub?
The Brickmakers Arms is an established community mainstream pub in suburban Ipswich that’s now become available. Benefiting from a large car park to the rear of this corner site and a live TV sports package, this locals’ pub has clearly designated public bar, lounge and snug areas, plus the ability to flex the space for private functions. Its patio beer garden with an outside screen is ideal for viewing bigger events, such as the World Cup or Olympics, in an al fresco environment. Darts and Pool are a popular attraction, with active teams in the local leagues.
This established community pub has previously traded well on the back of its sports offer and local teams, and could also benefit from a decent level of food sales, especially at weekends when a good Sunday lunch trade was previously established. It trades across three separate spaces: the public bar, a lounge area and a snug, which can be used by small groups for parties. The commercial kitchen can cater for up to 24 covers throughout. Live TV sport is a key attraction and the pub also provides free Wifi for customer use.
The domestic accommodation consists of two bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge, all in good order.
The local area
Located just outside Ipswich town centre, the Brickmakers Arms is surrounded by chimney pots, putting a large potential customer base on its doorstep. As such, the Pub is at the heart of the community in everything it does, from pub teams to charity events, serving the needs of local residents and community groups. There are several local amenities along the road that the pub sits on and Ipswich Hospital is also very close by.
The pub may suit
This could be an ideal starter pub for someone with good local knowledge and a willingness to succeed – or a new challenge for an experienced operator.
