99 Station Road, Polegate, East Sussex, BN26 6EB
An excellent opportunity for an experienced operator to run a quality site in the town of Polegate, with scope to develop a food offering that will not only appeal to the existing clientele but also the passing trade. A well positioned function room to the rear of the site is un-tapped potential waiting to happen.
The site sits just outside the centre of Polegate in a fairly densely populated area from which it draws a good local trade. The current trade is based round the community offering with a good games scene. Pool, darts & 'toad in the hole' to name a few lend themselves to strong team participation. There is also an excellent opportunity to create a value food offering, which will work well with the existing function room trade. The successful candidate will be able to show a proven track record in this area.
A one bar site with a lounge feel to the left hand side and a games public bar feel to the right hand side. The kitchen is situated at the rear of the main trade area, ideally located to serve the bar area and the function room that sits to the rear of the site. The function room is self supporting with a separate access to the side of the site, with its own toilets which are in addition to those that service the main trading area. To the front of the site there is good size patio area that is very popular in the summer months. Just to the side of the public bar there is a self contained smoking solution offering shelter to the elements.
