WET LED TOWN CENTRE VENUE
The Black Swan in Abingdon is a strong wet led Town centre Pub with real potential to improve. The site is currently 100% wet led, although a simple food offer could be introduced to support the drinks trade. The pub caters for regulars and locals throughout the day, whilst attracting the younger circuit drinkers in the evening thanks for the 2am weekend late licence. The new operator will need to re position the pub with a stronger product range, offer live sport and regular entertainment to stand out from the crowded local market place.
Abingdon is a bustling market town on the outskirts of Oxford with a growing population of around 33,000. With a strong cultural history, and being just 5 miles south of Oxford, the town has undergone much recent development and continues to flourish as a popular place to live with a great selection of local schools and historic attractions.
