TRADITIONAL VILLAGE PUB, WITH FABULOUS GARDEN
The Black Bull is a traditional, locals Pub in the Essex Village of Margaretting. The Pub really is at the heart of the local community and is known locally for its home cooked pub grub. The pubs trade is split roughly 50/50 between wet and dry sales. The pub encourages local groups and clubs to use their facilities and are home to a local darts and local dominos club, who meet regularly. This is a true locals pub, however, utilising social media and creative marketing could encourage new customers to the pub. The trade space is tidy and well presented, offering approximately fifty eight food covers internally. Externally, there is a large beer garden, which is well used during the summer months and could be utilised further to build trade.
