This community value pub is a busy local watering hole, with a beer garden and well-supported pool, darts and pétanque teams. It’s a popular place to watch live sports and there’s potential to introduce an appropriate food offer to boost trade. This pub is currently frequented by local residents and we’re planning an investment to broaden its appeal.
Known for its traditional pub games and live sports coverage, the Prince of Wales has well-supported pool, darts and pétanque teams. A BT Sport package is to be added to the existing Sky Sports offer to extend coverage of all the best TV sports action. Although there’s currently no food offer, there is clear potential to add a back bar catering operation, providing customers with a choice of simple menu options, such as pizzas and burgers. Extending the trading hours beyond the current 4pm midweek and 12pm weekend opening times is also an additional opportunity to build business here. Outside, there’s a beer garden and a smoking solution.
The domestic accommodation consists of two bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
We’re planning an investment to enhance the appeal of the pub to a broader audience and attract new customers from a slightly wider area.
The Prince of Wales is situated on a residential street just off the main high street in Newmarket, in Suffolk. It’s set in the heart of a large residential area, with a high proportion of rented property in the surrounding streets, plus many people commuting into Cambridge to work. The local football club is just down the road and the railway station is also nearby.
Suitable for a first-time operator – and ideal for a couple who are willing to immerse themselves in the local community and to commit to co-ordinating events in the pub for the benefit of the local residents.
