Brewers Arms

115 Marygate, Berwick-Upon-Tweed, Northumberland, TD15 1BH

TOWN CENTRE PUB WITH HIGH FOOTFALL

The Brewers Arms is a town centre; high footfall site, which is situated on one of the main town centre routes and close to all amenities and tourist venues. It is ideally suited to appeal to both locals and tourists who visit the historic town and the local caravan sites However, the operator most cater first for locals first as the winter season can be particularly quiet if too reliant on tourism. The pub trades as a community local with a home cooked value food offer. Sports are also key here to drive sales and footfall.

Location

Both day trippers and those staying in the many local camping and caravan sites all make this a particularly busy town in summer. The Brewers has a superb location on the main street inside the towns famous Elizabethan walls.

BDM Portrait

The ideal candidate for the Brewers is ideally someone from the town who understands the balance needed between the needs of locals and tourists and is able to make the most from both customer bases. An experienced operator with knowledge of the local market would be most advantageous.
