The village of Wilnecote lies about two miles south of Tamworth in Staffordshire and has a population of around 9,000. Footfall will come mainly from local residents, with the potential for some additional passing trade. The M42 lies just to the east of the village and the centre of Tamworth, a large market town, is just a short drive away. Drayton Manor Theme Park, Drayton Manor Zoo, Kingsbury Water Park, Tamworth Castle and the SnowDome are all popular local visitor attractions.
This lively local hub would suit either a first-time publican or an operator with previous experience. The key to making it success will be to engage customers old and new and proactively communicate the changes that are being implemented. If you’re able to develop a strong events-based and pub games offer, the pub’s core customers are likely to demonstrate their loyalty – resulting in a rewarding experience for all concerned.
