Looking to run a pub?
Located close to Macclesfield town centre and well known locally, Porters is a high street value pub that trades as a traditional ale house. Focusing on mainstream cask ales and draught products, it caters to an older local generation through the daytime, then becomes more of a circuit and entertainment driven destination through the weekend.
Seen as the most traditional pub in Macclesfield, Porters is an open plan trading operation, with one large bar and lounge area. It has a dedicated games area, with double darts throws, and free WiFi is provided throughout. Outside, there’s a small rear yard and a smoking solution, plus direct access to the town’s largest car park.
The domestic accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
We’re investing in full decoration and refurbishment to improve the presentation and kerb appeal of this pub. This will include new fixtures and fittings, bar and back bar, upgraded toilet facilities and external improvements to the rear yard.
The local area
The Porters is located on Roe Street, one of the main routes into the town centre. It’s shouldered by local housing and surrounded by car parks and large branded shops.
This pub may suit
The Porters may suit a publican with high street and cask knowledge, plus the ability to switch between serving daytime local trade from older generation customers to attracting weekend late night circuit drinkers.
