The Victoria currently presents a value/mainstream food and drink offer to a strong regular customer base and also attracts trade from pub sports teams, TV sports viewers and those attracted by the regular entertainment that the pub offers. The large outside space with its well-equipped children’s play area is a major summer attraction for families.
Well-maintained, this community pub was invested in about three years ago and has everything it requires to present a destination mainstream offer. It trades across four main areas: the public bar and lounge bar on the ground floor, a small first floor function room and a large beer garden to the rear of the pub. The pub’s catering kitchen can provide for up to 60 covers throughout. The main bar boasts a designated area for sports and televised coverage is a key draw. Outside, the grassed garden space features a fantastic range of children’s play equipment. There’s also a smoking solution and a large car park with 30 spaces.
The domestic accommodation consists of two bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
Newton-le-Willows is a market town on Merseyside, lying about halfway between Liverpool and Manchester. With a population of about 22,000, it’s a bustling place. The pub sits in a prominent position on one of the main roads through the town, not far from the town centre and other competitor pubs. There are plenty of residential properties all around.
This pub would benefit from the passion and drive of a good owner operator with food and business-building experience. You’ll need to be a good host, with a passion for developing community links and using sport and entertainment options to drive footfall.
