Looking to run a pub?
Located in the centre of Plymouth, the Seymour Arms is a community mainstream pub that sits in the heart of student land. It’s a spacious pub that’s about to benefit from significant investment. We’re now looking for the right operator to take this blank canvas and spearhead a new vision to make it great again.
The Seymour Arms is a large, open plan trading operation, with a central L-shaped bar serving a lounge bar and a dedicated sports area which has pool tables and darts boards. The existing domestic-style kitchen will be refurbished and equipped to cater for up to 30 covers throughout. Free WiFi is provided.
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 a substantial refurbishment here to help take this pub to the next level.
About the local area
Located just to the west of Plymouth city centre, the pub sits in a large residential area that’s within easy walking distance of Plymouth University, as well as the city centre and Drake Circle. A lot of students live in this area, mainly in rented houses and flats.
This pub may suit
Ideal for someone interested in a younger student trade, with a love of music and sports. You’ll be looking to introduce a fun and a quirky food offer, as well as a craft beer offer alongside the draught range.
