Could you run this pub?
The Pied Bull, is a traditional pub/hotel which sits on the high street of Newton-le-Willows, near Warrington. This is a multi-faceted business which has an established reputation for food, drink, entertainment and its letting rooms. The business is also in great location just a short drive from the M6 motorway and Newton -le-Willows railway station, with easy access to the cities of Manchester and Liverpool.
We now have plans to complete a total refurbishment of this pub to a high standard with a proposed investment of over £1,000,000 to enhance it to its very best and to create a fantastic pub restaurant that will appeal to all.
Business facilities & Refurbishment
With an approved investment spend of over £1 million we are looking to create a fabulous, easy to manage open plan trading area with a new look central bar, this will be complimented with a sports viewing area, dining (for 100+ covers) and drinking spaces, with new high-quality fixtures and fittings throughout. The two floors of letting rooms will all have a full makeover, which will ensure all 13 rooms will be en-suite and finished to a high standard. Included in the plan is a brand new 2-tier drinking and dining area to the front of the pub which will transform the kerb appeal and become the place to be at weekends and evenings in the summer months. This pub/hotel also offers a good-sized beer garden, a smoking solution, WiFi and parking for up to 16 cars at the rear.
