Occupying a prime position on the main road across the island, the Stag is a great example of a contemporary food-led pub. It’s a large pub, with fantastic family-friendly facilities, an extensive beer garden and dedicated children’s play area, an easily accessible car park with 22 spaces and a smoking solution. Inside, the Stag offers separate trading areas, which are ideally suited for drinking and casual or more formal dining. There are 4 en-suite letting rooms, 3 double and 1 twin. The latter is available in a large conservatory, which can also be used for parties. The large, well-appointed kitchen can cater for up to 75 covers, accommodating functions and parties in addition to regular food trade. Unlike other pubs, the Stag is a consistent performer throughout the year.
Please note this Pub does not have domestic accommodation.
The Stag is situated in a prominent position on the main A3020 road between Cowes and Newport on the northern side of the Isle of Wight. The area is always busy with travellers between these two towns, so there’s plenty of opportunity to attract passing trade. Holidaymakers also use this route to travel from the north to south of the island and back up again. The immediate area around the pub is primarily residential housing, with a high proportion of young families and the elderly. It’s also a significant area of the island in terms of large employers, with the local hospital and prisons less than a mile away, and several other large employers close by.
The Stag would suit an experienced marketer, who has the high operational standards in food and letting rooms that will allow you to unlock the full potential of this pub’s diverse target groups.
