Falcon

45 Marine Parade, Southend-on-Sea, Essex, SS1 2EN

A characterful traditional seaside pub located directly on Southend Seafront, home of the world's longest pier!

The Falcon is a traditional pub that services the local community throughout the year with a substantial increase in trade throughout the Spring/Summer months from tourists and visitors to this seaside location. We have a planned investment to refresh the décor both internally and externally. The pub does not have a kitchen, so the focus is on great quality drinks and service. There is however an opportunity to introduce easy to serve bar snacks e.g. Scotch eggs, Sausage Rolls, Pies etc

Location

Southend is the seventh most densely populated area in the United Kingdom outside of the London Boroughs. With fast train links to central London, Southend is popular with tourists and commuters with house prices in 2012 showing the highest rises in the UK

BDM Portrait

I am looking ideally for an experienced hands on operator for this seasonal pub. Successful applicants need to take pride in delivering a great drinks range and be able to work with the community and tourists alike. You should be able to adapt both operationally and financially with a seasonal business.
