Looking to run a pub?
This traditional-looking, stone-built community mainstream pub offers 10 letting rooms, which attract tourists, walkers and weekenders all year round. The Pont Y Pair benefited from major investment four years ago and has been very well looked after ever since.
The Pont Y Pair, Wales has a lovely homely feel. Its central location in Betws-y-coed means it attracts plenty of footfall and its Cask Marque accreditation is also a draw. The 10 letting rooms pull in custom year-round. Downstairs, the pub has a main bar and sports area plus a small restaurant-cum-breakfast room to the right as you walk in. There’s a great commercial kitchen here and customers are encouraged to enjoy food at tables throughout the pub, not just in the restaurant area. The kitchen can provide for up to 40 covers. Outside, the pub offers a beer garden with a new decked area and more tables, providing more covers during summer months. A smoking solution with heaters has also recently been installed. Free WiFi is offered throughout.
The domestic accommodation consists of two bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
The local area
The Pont Y Pair sits in a stunning location, surrounded by Snowdonia National Park. This really is a beautiful part of Wales. Betws-y-coed is known as a hub of hiking and outdoor activities and attracts plenty of visitors all year round. It’s also home to the Snowdonia National Park Visitor Centre. It’s a small but thriving village. The nearest large communities are Bangor, about 45 minutes’ drive away, and Chester, which is over an hour distant.
This pub may suit
This pub with rooms will ideally be managed by a couple, so one can run the kitchen alongside the chef and the other can run the letting side of business, as enquiries and bookings take up a lot of time and effort in this tourist hotspot.
