This traditional-looking community mainstream pub is a locals’ favourite. Trade is wet-only, and a renewing the Cask Marque accreditation will help to pull in cask ale lovers, while live TV sports coverage attracts sports fans. There’s a clear opportunity to build this business through extended opening hours, premiumisation and improved marketing.
Situated in a large Nottinghamshire village just outside Newark-on-Trent, the Rose & Crown is a well-positioned community mainstream pub that’s popular with locals. It’s a two-roomed traditional pub, with wet-only trade and a focus on sports, both in terms of live TV coverage and teams. The pub is Cask Marque accredited and is in very good order throughout. It has a loyal band of regular drinkers and benefits from having another local pub almost opposite to create a small circuit. Our vision for this site is for the incoming operator to retain the current clientele while also growing the business through the introduction of premium drinks, improved marketing and enhanced customer service levels. The pub has a Skittle alley which proves to be a popular attraction for regulars at the pub, as well as local teams. Outside, there’s a grassed beer garden to the rear of the property, along with a smoking solution.
The private accommodation consists of two bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge.
The Rose & Crown is situated on a key route through the large village of Balderton, about a mile south-east of Newark town centre. Balderton is one of the largest villages in Nottingham shire and Main Street offers a variety of local amenities, including a Post Office and a Tesco Express supermarket that is almost directly opposite the pub. There are residential properties all around, predominantly owner-occupied private housing.
This would be the perfect property for someone with local knowledge and an appreciation of cask ales, who also has a desire to help this pub become the focal point of the community. This is a great opportunity to put your stamp on what is a vibrant local pub.
