Located next to the always busy A30 and a key Cornish cycle path, the Plume of Feathers benefits from seasonal trade as well as good local business. It also has two letting rooms. The area is being developed with a mixed use retail and light industrial business park on the pub’s doorstep, so good weekday food trade can be developed. This community mainstream pub has good wet and dry trade and with the right operator would be a successful community pub throughout the year, with the benefit of a summer uplift.
The Plume of Feathers is an open plan trading operation, with the added benefit of two letting rooms. A good bar area provides a drinking space separate to the dining provision and the kitchen can cater for up to 20 covers at full capacity. In the summer months, the outside area can add an extra 30 covers or more if required. This also doubles as the smoking area in cooler weather. The pub has a good beer garden with a small play area that can be developed and there’s a large car park with space for up to 30 vehicles. Free Wi-Fi is provided throughout.
The domestic accommodation consists of one bedroom, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
We’re planning a modest refurbishment to freshen up the trading area, the installation of a fully re-fitted kitchen to bring the catering facilities up-to-date and a sparkle investment in the domestic accommodation and letting rooms.
The pub is located on the outskirts of Redruth and has a lot of light industry and retail on its doorstep. It is set adjacent to the always busy A30 main road through Cornwall, providing quick access for passing trade and customers driving to the pub. The Cornish Cycleway passes right outside the pub and the Plume of Feathers is roughly halfway on the route, making it an ideal stopping point. Nearby are several tourist attractions, such as Cornwall Gold and mining museums.
Ideal for a young partnership looking for their first solo operation or a community-focused person who will work to develop a following. The ability to provide a food offering is a must, especially in the summer months to attract the tourist trade. With the commercial business and cycle trail next door, the ability to operate a café style business outside of normal trade hours would be good.
