Set on a large plot, this community value pub has a strong focus on sports and weekend entertainment. Its beer garden is a popular place to enjoy a drink or two in summer months. The wet-only trade here could be boosted by introducing slightly more premium products alongside value drinks. Sales are driven largely through pub sports, games and links with local rugby club the Immingham Wasps. Regular entertainment is promoted to draw additional customers in on Fridays and throughout the weekend trading period.
The Mayflower is a spacious value pub that enjoys close ties with the local community. It’s set out across three distinctive trading areas: a function room, a main bar area and a sports area, with a pool table and darts board. This games space is serviced by its own separate bar. Outside, the pub benefits from having a large car park with space for up to 25 vehicles, a smoking solution and a beer garden offering external seating. Free WiFi is provided throughout.
The domestic accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge – plus a private garden. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
The Mayflower is situated in the heart of a large residential area in Immingham on the south-west bank of the Humber Estuary. Immingham is a small town that lies about 6 miles north-west of Grimsby. There’s a local population of about 11,500. The Mayflower is set about half a mile from the centre of Immingham, surrounded by residential housing and in close proximity to the local primary school and other businesses.
You’ll need to be quick to build strong community ties here and keep the pub at the centre of local life. This personable approach could bring the added benefit of hosting community functions and parties in the separate function room area.
