Dukes Head

57 High Street, Leatherhead, Surrey, KT22 8AG

Pub overview

Transform this pub to take advantage of its superb location

Pub opportunities like this don't come up very often! The Dukes Head sits at the heart of a busy, town-centre shopping area. We’re investing in this business to turn it into a vibrant focal point for the town. The plan is to create a retail operation that works hard for you from breakfast through to lunch, into the afternoon and evening. We’ll be zoning the trading areas to accommodate casual drinkers as well as dining customers and there is potential to develop a meeting room to make even more from the space. Get in touch now and you can help shape this business with us

The current pub has a loyal group of customers, but is not making the most of its prime location. Our investment will help you take advantage of passing trade and create something unique in the high street that will provide a perfect meeting place for shoppers as well as a more appealing destination for evening guests

Volume notes


Leatherhead is an affluent area with almost double the number of managerial and professional households than the national average. The town has a high proportion of house ownership and is also slightly older – so your catchment audience has money to spend! The pub’s location right on the High St close to the Swan Shopping Centre is ideal for attracting customers with high levels of disposable income and by transforming the business, you can make the most of this opportunity
