Pub overview

Refurbished over the last 2 years, The Commercial Inn is a large well appointed site with a function suite and external terrace. There are many facets to this site that will help drive differing dwell opportunities for the varied customer base that Beeston and its surrounding areas provide.

The Commercial Inn sits within Beeston town centre, surrounded by many retail outlets including large well used supermarkets, banks and well known high street names. The Commercial Inn is a community mainstream pub and as such would benefit from an operator that will drive local activity through ties to the community, teams and local charity. Currently The Commercial Inn has an Indian food offer and whilst this attracts trade weekends and evenings, the site would hugely benefit from the introduction of a mainstream menu to drive daytime footfall. Within the 3 miles of the site there are potentially over 152,000 people, from varying cultures and nationalities, including many students attending Nottingham University. The Commercial Inn currently does not attract this very lucrative customer base.

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.

“ The Commercial Inn has the potential to be a great community pub, serving the people of Beeston and the surrounding towns. With the introduction of a mainstream menu, sports and community activity this great pub will be brought back to life with the right operator. I am looking for someone who has the capability to understand the local area and drive activity to increase footfall through local and national events, the introduction of a new food offer, team and sports activity and charity ties. ”
