This wet-led community pub is a popular place to watch live TV sports and to enjoy weekend entertainment. It occupies a prime spot on the high street, so sees plenty of footfall and offering a basic food menu – especially at key trading times – would help to boost business here. Our vision for this pub is to create a great community wet-led local with later trading at weekends and a real focus on both live sports and weekend entertainment.
The Cornerstone enjoys a prominent corner location at the end of the high street. Benefitting from recent investment, it’s well-positioned to attract passing trade all week round. It’s an open plan trading operation, with a nearly new catering kitchen that can provide for up to 40 covers. The pub is Cask Marque accredited and offers a dedicated pool table and sports viewing area, as well as free WiFi. Outside, there’s a small drinking area and a smoking solution, plus parking space for 15 cars.
The domestic accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.

An ideal opportunity for a community focused operator, or a couple, with an interest in pub teams, live sport and putting on a strong programme of entertainment at the weekends.
