Gamekeeper

40 High Street, Scotter, Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, DN21 3TW

LARGE COMMUNITY PUB WITH GREAT FOOD

The Gamekeeper at Scotter is a great community pub renowned for its quality food and regular entertainment. The pub currently trades at a 60/30 split in favour of drink sales, however there is a great opportunity to further drive beer volume and drink sales. The key to doing this could be via sport on TV and closer ties to the community. The site currently attracts a mixed customer base and is supported by the locals however further engagement would be beneficial. The current food offer gives you a solid foundation to build upon and scope to further grow the business.

I am searching for an operator with some experience of a community pub. The new operator should have the ability to continue the pubs successful food offer, but attract more drinkers to drive beer volume using sport on TV and entertainment to become the true heart of the community. If this feels like it could your next opportunity then contact the recruitment team for more information.
