Hollington Oak

210 Wishingtree Road, St Leonards-on-Sea, East Sussex, TN38 9LB


The Hollington Oak is situated in a large residential area in the seaside town of St Leonards on Sea. The site predominately caters for local residents and offers a value food range but is mostly wet led, trading at a 65/35 sales split in favour of drink. The future success of the business will require you to capitalise upon the existing local trade and further utilising the pubs assets, including the large garden and car park. The pub should position its self as a value led family offer, with live sport on TV, activities for kids and meal deals. The pub is well presented and has plenty of trade space internally. There is also no immediate local competitors, so with plenty of chimney pots close by, there is a large captive audience to take advantage of. Part of the garden area to the right hand side of the pub is to be held on a licence, as it has recently received planning permission for a small residential development. This is likely to be developed in the next couple of years


St Leonards-on-Sea is a town and seaside resort in the Borough of Hastings in East Sussex. It has been part of the borough since the late 19th century and lies to the west of central Hastings. The original part of the settlement was laid out in the early 19th century as a new town: a place of elegant houses designed for the well-off; it also included a central public garden, a hotel, an archery, assembly rooms and a church. Today's St Leonards has extended well beyond that original design, although the original town still exists within it.

BDM Portrait

I am ideally seeking an experienced operator although I would consider a first-time operator if they have adequate local knowledge and can display a desire and passion for the industry. The pub has huge potential to increase trade and has no close by competition. If this feels like the right pub for you, then please contact the recruitment team for further information.
