The Falcon is a classic community mainstream pub and is used by several groups and teams in the immediate area, as well as local residents. We’re planning a modest investment to enhance the décor throughout to appeal to this customer base and better reflect the retail offer. Benefiting from a prominent position on a key route into Ryde, the Falcon competes with the numerous town centre pubs and has built up a reputation for live music and sports.
The Falcon is an attractive stone building with strong kerbside appeal. There’s a small patio area to the front and a beer garden to the side and rear, with ample on-street parking on adjacent roads.
Internally, the pub is in fair condition, only requiring some simple redecoration. The central bar serves two distinct areas: a sports zone with pool and darts facilities plus TV screens for Sky Sports and a more comfortable lounge area, which is laid out for both drinking and dining and with a real fire. The pub’s small kitchen can provide for up to 30 covers throughout. The dining area leads out via patio doors to the pleasant, enclosed beer garden where there is plentiful seating and a smoking solution.
The domestic accommodation consists of four bedrooms and a kitchen. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
Our planned investment is focused on simple cosmetic enhancements to improve the offer here.
The Falcon is located in Ryde, on the north coast of the Isle of Wight. Occupying a prominent location on a busy through road, it’s situated a short walk from Ryde town centre in a highly populated area. The pub is surrounded by residential properties, putting a strong potential customer base on its doorstep.
The ideal operator here is someone who wants to play a central role within the local community. You’ll also enjoy marketing the pub, using contacts with local bands, sports teams and the like.
