Looking to run a pub?

PJ McGinty’s ( Soon to be the Halberd Inn) has traded as a wet-led Irish themed pub for a number of years, just off the main circuit in Ipswich. Our intention for this pub is to put the heart and soul back into the business with an improved food and drink offer and refurbishment of the trading area to with live music and screens to enjoy Sky sports events, as the pub has done in the past. Upgrade and refurbishment of the trading area to focus on live music and sports.

Business facilities

This well-established pub operates across three main trading areas: the public bar, a lounge bar and a separate function room, with up to 42 covers throughout. It provides free WiFi for customers’ use and also boasts a large covered beer garden area.


The domestic accommodation consists of three bedrooms and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.

The local area

The pub is located in central Ipswich, just off the main circuit. There’s a variety of competition in the immediate area, including GK Pubs, Yates’s and JDW, as well as coffee chains and fast food outlets. The area is ripe for inward investment, as there also a large number of charity shops and several closed A3 units nearby.
