Situated in the centre of Dorchester, Hardys has benefited from recent investment, including a name change, and is in great condition. This high street mainstream pub has a strong local following and is well known throughout the area for its live music and sports offer. There’s an untapped opportunity to develop and introduce a basic, small food menu to boost revenue here, and the pub also offer letting accommodation.
This Cask Marque accredited pub is an open plan trading operation, with a large public bar opening onto a designated area for live music plus a separate pool and darts space. Live TV sports are shown and free WiFi is offered throughout. Outside, there’s a small beer garden to the rear and a smoking solution. The pub has benefits from a suite of 5 letting rooms.
The domestic accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
We’re planning investment to refurbish the domestic accommodation at this pub.
Hardys sits in a great location near to Brewers Square in the centre of Dorchester and on the main route into and out of town. Well situated for shops, parking, taxis and passing footfall, the pub is in a great position to attract and capture passing trade.
We’re looking for a community focused operator who also has strong high street marketing skills. Some food knowledge is preferable, to tap into the opportunity to establish a basic menu here.
