Derby Arms

635 Knowsley Lane, Knowsley, Prescot, Merseyside, L34 9EA

The Derby Arms is a recently refurbished pub in very good order, with a good kitchen and cellar. An internal inspection is highly recommended.

EXPERIENCED OPERATOR ESSENTIAL. The pub is in very good condition thanks to the recent investment and has enjoyed excellent trade since refurbishment. The Pub is split into lounge and bar area and served by a very large car park, with over one hundred spaces. The pub also benefits from a well-appointed beer garden to the rear that overlooks the surrounding countryside, as you can imagine, this is very popular over the warmer months. There is plenty of passing trade here, so getting the external marketing right will be key to future success. The right operator will have a commitment to continue the already good food offering, whilst also looking to improve the choices on offer, perhaps by improving the specials on offer?

I am looking for an operator who is experienced in food and can extend and improve the current offer. They must have an interest in sport and the promotion of sport in the pub is key. This is a large site with a big car park and good beer garden. Please contact the recruitment team for more information
