Pub overview

Town Centre Pub, with scope for big improvements

The Commercial Inn has been refurbished within the last few years and is well presented internally. The Pub benefits from a mix of wet and dry trade and has a popular Indian Food offer. The introduction of another food offer to run alongside is needed to increase footfall, as well as more activities to engage with the local population. The site also benefits from a function suite and a lovely terrace to enjoy the sunshine. With these various facets, there are multiple income streams which can be improved upon and maximised. There are approximately 152,000 people living within a 3 mile radius of the Pub, including students from the University of Nottingham, which the Pub does not currently attract, so engaging with this local community is vital to your success.

The Commercial Inn currently has two main trading areas on the ground floor and a function room on the first floor. The main trading area is served by one bar but there are two distinct trading areas, to the left of the bar there is ample space to help drive food covers and more comfortable drinking. The area in front of the bar would be perfect to create a sports and entertainment area with pool, darts and Sky Sports. There is a good sized function room on the first floor which can be used to host private parties, weddings and live music. The kitchen is equipped to be able to service a full menu.

“ I am looking for a great operator to re invigorate this well presented and recently renovated Pub. The Commercial Inn has various income streams and these really could be improved upon. The Pub is centrally located and already has an Indian Food offer which has regular evening and weekend trade, but you could introduce a daytime menu alongside this and help dramatically increase footfall. If you have knowledge of the local area, a passion for great service, and are community focused, we would love for you to get in touch ”
