The White Hart is a community mainstream pub that sits on the main road though the village of Quorn, just to the south of Loughborough. Best known for its cask ales, it also offers a boules pitch, a covered terrace and the potential to introduce a small food menu.
This White Hart is an open plan trading operation, with an L-shaped bar area and a small servery. This space is primarily geared towards pub games, with darts the main feature. The pub has a kitchen but it’s currently unused, so there’s a clear opportunity to introduce a small and manageable food offer for a maximum of about 25 covers. Outside, there’s a covered terrace area, a smoking solution and a boules pitch to the rear. The pub provides free WiFi and parking for 12 cars.
The domestic accommodation consists of two bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge. Punch will ensure that this accommodation is in good order.
We’re planning investment at this pub to enhance the interior by introducing new bar furniture, opening up the room to the front and incorporating a side room where darts is currently played. The exterior detailing will also get a makeover.
Located just south of Loughborough, the village of Quorn is fairly affluent with a good community feel and the potential for decent margins. The White Hart sits next to a vintage inn and there’s healthy competition in the area, but also a strong potential customer base on the doorstep.
We’re looking for an operator who is known in the area and who has cask ale experience. You’ll need to be able to drive marketing and also be willing to explore the potential for a small food offer.
