The Railway is a great pub for someone looking for their first business venture in the trade. This community value pub is a wet-led operation, although a hand-held food offer is also available. It’s a popular place with sports fans and for local teams to gather. The large rear garden is a key draw in summer months, and the pub is also perfectly placed to attract people using the local train station.
The Railway is an open plan trading operation, with a horseshoe-shaped main bar area. It also offers a dedicated pool/sports zone and free WiFi. The pub has recently been painted externally and we’re planning a small investment to refresh internal decoration here as part of the letting process. Outside, there’s a large rear beer garden area that has just been revamped and the pub also provides car parking space for 5 vehicles.
The domestic accommodation consists of one bedroom, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
Thetford is a thriving market town in Norfolk that’s located about halfway between Norwich and Cambridge. With a population of about 24,500, the town is a popular choice with commuters. The pub is situated in a prominent position, right next to Thetford railway station. It’s also surrounded by residential properties, putting a strong potential customer base on its doorstep. Go Ape and Thetford Forest are popular local attractions for both residents and visitors to the area.
This is ideal as a first-time pub, as trade is wet-led. You’ll need to be someone with great marketing and social media skills.
