This traditional community mainstream pub is a popular place among locals who love a good pint of cask ale and a bit of sport. But it could be attracting a much wider customer base, pulling customers in from all of the surrounding villages. The Farmers Arms now needs to be brought back to life with a good home-cooked food offer and compelling promotions on meals to get people to visit. A warm welcome at every visit and strong marketing could really help to boost trade here.
The Farmers Arms trades across separate areas, including the main bar, a lounge area for informal dining and a dedicated pool/sports zone, which should prove popular among local sports teams. The kitchen can cater for up to 45 covers throughout and the pub has a good cask ales offer too. Live entertainment at weekends would likely help to grow trade and the beer garden is popular in warm weather. The pub also provides parking for 30 cars.
The domestic accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
Kelsall is a village in Cheshire that lies about 8 miles east of Chester and a similar distance to the west of Winsford. The larger village of Tarporley is about 4 miles away. It’s a thriving community, with good local amenities and a population of about 2,600. The Farmers Arms is located on the western edge of the village, just off the busy main A54 road between Chester and Winsford.
We’re looking for a community-minded operator, who has the drive and determination to help this site achieve its full potential. It would be ideal for couple, with one person operating the kitchen and the other looking after the wet side of the business.
