The Claremont (new name) sits in a vibrant area overlooking the historic city of Bath, enjoying great views of the whole city. Previously a standard community proposition called the Rising Sun, we are investing heavily in this pub to transform it into a more modern and relevant concept in the area. Working with the very best operator, we’ll have the opportunity to drive a quality-led, community premium offer in the market.
Following transformational refurbishment work, the Claremont will have two main trading areas, set out with intelligent partitioning to create a cosy, but spacious, pub environment. The catering kitchen will be able to provide for up to 50 covers across the main bar and restaurant areas. The pub also has a conservatory. The pub is Cask Marque accredited and free WiFi is provided throughout. Outside, the current beer garden will receive a makeover and we plan to add a new outside area to the rear of the pub to make the most of its elevated position.
The domestic accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
We’re planning large-scale investment at this pub, which will overhaul the current building and structure, at this time the pub name will change to Claremont.
Bath is a large city in its own right, but also benefits from a high influx of tourism all year round. The immediate area surrounding the Claremont is home to a mix of transient rental hubs and younger professionals and is constantly changing to attract more professionals to the area.
The ideal operator will have good, relevant experience at a senior level in a high street bar or restaurant. Quality and attention to detail is key in this demanding market and energy to drive and promote a new concept is essential.
