Pubs of the Week
Date added: Mon, 11/07/2016 - 10:00
This week’s regional focus on our latest pubs to let is, Southampton in Hampshire. This busy city with its tourism, universities and business interests is a prime location for a successful pub business.
Hi. It’s Laura here from the Pub Partners team. After our first ever Pub of the Week blog post went live last week and I’m back with the next in the series.
Looking at the best pubs in my region I couldn’t decide so I have picked two in the same location. Cheeky I know!
Pubs To Let In Southampton
If you are looking for a pub to run then Southampton is a great choice. Known as the cruise capital of Europe, Southampton plays host to over four million visitors a year and boasts an impressive cultural offering, from museums, music venues and art galleries, to award winning parks and the general hustle and bustle of a diverse city with fantastic shopping facilities.
Both of these pubs are exciting opportunities. As pubs to let they would suit entrepreneurial people with a creative spark. That said, both are very different types of pubs.
Station, Bitterne Park
Only a 1.3 mile walk away from the Southampton Football Club stadium St. Mary’s Stadium, the Station pub has vast potential. The pub gets especially busy when Southampton FC are playing at home, being so close to the stadium and being very close to the local train station, which is how it got the name. It’s a community pub, serving good food and boasts a large trade space inside as you can see from the pictures below. Being so close to the centre of Southampton means this pub is in an excellent location.
There is also a private function room and 5 TV’s to screen sport. As well as this, there’s a pool table and darts board to entertain your customers inside of the pub.
Not only that, there are 3 double bedrooms with a lounge, kitchen and office upstairs!
I’m looking for a landlord with the entrepreneurial spark and creativity. Entry costs are around £20K for this pub. Request a call back if you’d could run a pub like this.
Junction Inn, Southampton
The Junction Inn is one of our Local Hero sites, also nearby to Southampton Football club. Regular customers at the pub are locals with a keen interest in cask ales. Because of it’s great location there is plenty of on-street parking nearby to cater for diners and people at the bar. For those summer days and evenings the beer garden is perfect too.
In terms of the operator I’d like to run a pub like this, a landlord with an interest in craft beer and cask ales would be brilliant. Experience in the hospitality industry is ideal due to the core of local customers. Entry costs are around £15 -20K for this pub.
As above, request a call back if you’d like run a pub like this. And if you are looking for a pub in another region of the country, over to Kerry…
Northumberland Arms, Newcastle
It’s exciting to tell you about a pub known as the “Hidden gem of the city”, in the centre of Newcastle Upon Tyne. Located just off the main shopping street in the city, the Northumberland Arms has a huge investment planned to transform this pub into a “prohibition” style bar. It has a very quirky, 1920’s feel to it inside with the décor and layout. It’s known for the cocktails and food the pub serves it’s customers. Just take a look at the illustrations of it below, it’s a pub full of character and attracts people for this reason alone, let alone the offering a great landlord would bring.
I’m looking for a landlord who has a background in hospitality or cooking, with a creative spark. Because of the planned investment and great location and reputation this pub has, entry costs are around £30K for this pub.
As above, request a call back if you’d like run a pub like this. And if you are looking for a pub in another region of the country, over to Natasha…
Robin Hood Hotel, Nottingham
Where else in the country could a pub called the Robin Hood Hotel be located than Nottingham? This pub to let is very much a community pub, with great décor and is spacious when inside. It’s known for a traditional feel and drinks offering, as well as good food and terrace overlooking Sherwood.
The operator of this pub would need to appreciate great food and customer service, as well as live entertainment. The pub has a very large kitchen facility and regularly hosts live entertainment, a reason the pub is popular within the core of local customers.
Entry costs for the Robin Hood Hotel are around £28K.
