Pub overview

Great opportunity to run a local community pub.

The Bulldog sits on a prominent corner location, opposite a 6th form centre and backing onto a large housing area. With a parade of small shops and a shared car park, it’s in an ideal spot to take advantage of the busy neighbourhood comings and goings to build trade and expand the food side of the business.

The pub has a large single bar area that makes it easy to operate and has concentrated on serving value-for-money drinks, relying on sports to keep people interested. The food side of the business has been limited, but with a fully operational catering kitchen, you could expand sales in this area and help to grow day trading too. The Greene King Food & Supplies Service can provide everything you need to make food easy – including menus, crockery, ingredients training and even marketing materials to help sell it.

Volume notes


The pub is on a corner location and next to a mini supermarket, so it’s in an ideal position to attract passing trade. Housing in the area is modern (60s/70s) and mostly semi detached with surprisingly high levels of ownership. Employment is high, mostly working in supervisory or semi-skilled roles. As you would expect, because the pub is next to schools, colleges and a sports centre, many people work in these industries.
