The Met, in the market town of Stockton in Tees, County Durham is undergoing a substantial refurbishment introducing a new concept for the local residents as well as office workers, shoppers and passing trade. Its a great opportunity to work with us to launch a fresh concept for the area which will focus on great value for money, high levels of service alongside live sports, games teams and regular entertainment.
There will be price led product alongside quality cask ales, craft beers, fine wines and premium spirits including gins and the opportunity is available on a on a retail contract.
The pub will remain open plan but the refurbishment will create a warm and inviting welcome to the anticipated new custom. There will be a dedicated sports area for darts, pool and bar games. There will also be a mixture of seating that will encourage comfort for dining, seating areas for socialising, and area for standing and a sports viewing area with new screens so customers can watch sky and BT.
