Pub overview

Excellent opportunity to take over a well-established business, which has been operated by the same licensee for the last 25 years. The site already offers a strong trade but comes with the exciting opportunity for joint investment, which will revitalise the site and provide further potential for business growth!

Sitting right in the heart of the historic city of Lincoln, The Peacock can attract a wide range of clientele. There is currently a diverse food offer covering families, the mature market and a great student based deal menu. A range of cask ales available on a rotational basis and a selection of fine wines make the Peacock the perfect place for drinks. There is also a strong following for sports coverage and even the offering to partake in some more traditional pub games, ranging from dominoes to cribbage.

An open plan, free flowing trade area that splits itself perfectly, with clear delineated areas for drinking and dining and an attractive external drinking area.
